Tatiana Trouvé

Born in 1968 in Cosenza (Italy), TATIANA TROUVÉ lives and works in Paris (France). In all of Trouvé’s work, something seems to shrink the different places and times of the cosmos in an archeological journey towards the deep springs of the world. It is not that her works imitate the style or the taste of a vanished time in human history—rather, by drawing not on time itself but on the original force of art and the world, of technique and nature, her works find a way to capture their most telluric power. Rather than thinking of art as the imaginative activity of the world’s lost infancy, Tatiana Trouvé strives to bring it together with planetary geology. The space of this coming together is the studio. It is in these planetary incubators that the world, things, and the souls who make them (artists) undergo an imperceptible, incessant metamorphosis, and art is its silent, implacable guardian. Kamel Mennour and Tatiana Trouvé have been working together since 2018.
