Prix Marcel Duchamp 2007
Tatiana Trouvé: 4 Between 3 and 2
Paris, Centre Pompidou

Tatiana Trouvé won the Prix Marcel Duchamp, which is France's most prestigious contemporary art prize, in 2007. This exhibition in the Espace 315 of the Centre Pompidou is part of the award. Born in Italy in 1968 and based in Paris, Trouvé conceptualizes and develops her work through her Bureau d'Activités Implicites (B.A.I. – meaning Bureau of Implicit Activities), which she began in 1997. She is widely regarded as one of the most promising artists of her generation. This excellent and very focused exhibition, which reconfigures and interacts with the dimensionality of the gallery's space, certainly confirms this.

The title of her new show refers to the search for an intermediate, temporal dimension between those of sculpture and drawings; this is temporarily expressed through the falling black sand from the walls. A pierced black metal grille divides the space, while glass corridors seem to stretch to infinity through clever, hidden reflections. Trouvé's gym-equipment-inspired sculptures, such as a bronze rope rising up through the air, explore the possibilities of gravity and form and her black-on-black and grey drawings reveal an architectural precision. Her work is deeply, intellectually researched, innovative and stylized, making this an exhibition not to be missed.
