Italian-born, Paris-based Tatiana Trouvé is known for her sculptures, installations and drawings often brought together in precisely-scaled architectural installations which suggest the possibility of underlying narratives. Frequently using cast materials, such as concrete, marble, copper and bronze, she transforms everyday objects into poetic architectural sculptural forms.
On view for the first time at Frieze London, a new large-scale fountain installation features water falling from an uprooted bronze tree surrounded by a cracked concrete floor, allowing visitors to dive into an immersive experience.
At kamel mennour’s London gallery, Tatiana Trouvé re-enacts her emblematic Prepared Space installation. In this piece, the entire surface of the floor and walls is marked by long slits inserted with spacers, borrowed from the world of architecture and construction. The various trajectories intersect and join each other to form an abstract navigation map, creating a microcosm with random punctuations, a kind of geographic homage to Cage’s “prepared pianos”. This is the artist’s first major solo exhibition in London since her South London Gallery show in 2010.
In the Paris gallery, Tatiana Trouvé presents a group of sculptures inspired by visits to her studio at night. The exhibitions are accompanied by a text from philosopher Emanuele Coccia.
