Tatiana Trouvé Biography

In disquieting, entropic mise-en-scènes, Tatiana Trouvé limns the boundaries between the mental and the physical, where material space and form converge with immaterial time and memory. Her situations combine intricate scenographic drawings, sculptures both linear and three-dimensional, and spaces that hint at invisible dimensions. Whether found or created, Trouvé’s 'environmental dramas' are melancholy yet highly charged, palimpsests containing echoes of other lived spaces and realities, which oscillate between the real, the imaginary, and the phantasmic.
