#FLVfromhome : Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster

Past exhibition - Wednesday 8 July 2020

6 p.m.

Like Pierre Huyghe and Philippe Parreno, with whom she has been linked since her student days in Grenoble, the exhibition is Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster’s preferred medium.


Gonzalez-Foerster presents her work in a way and space designed to create an intimate, domestic feel. “Someone, at home, is always starting an exhibition. Any photo put on a wall, the way we position an object, etc. The shape of rooms is a natural shape for an exhibition, and an exhibition is a natural form of room,” explains the artist.


Starting in 1988, Gonzalez-Foerster created just over 50 interiors – installations that condense climates and emotions through objects, colours, lighting and different ways of manipulating the space. Since then, she has moved her work outdoors, and in two different directions. In the space offered by film, which for her is the logical next step from the exhibition, she has produced a succession of short films exploring public spaces – parks and cities where people meet and communicate. At the same time, she has reconceived the exhibition in view of the forms at its frontiers (the 19th century panorama) or by bringing other real or imaginary spaces into the museum or public space.
