  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    The "Espaces muséaux" series gives Muriel Bordier’s critical, funny and often satirical vision of Contemporary Art, and more precisely on its staging in the exhibition spaces. She points out these areas called "White cube". We discover this museum environment by the exaggeration of the characteristics of uncluttered, spotless, sanitized architecture made of immense spaces in which the public is deliberately reduced, making these places almost inhuman.

    Art is no longer the exhibited pieces, but rather the hanging place and its architecture itself.
    In this staging we meet all the characters making museum’s life: public, exhibition curator, guards and also technicians who maintain these places.
    In this series Muriel Bordier photographs architectural maquettes in cardboard she first produced. She brings models individually into her studio and photographs them in predetermined poses. Finally, she installs each photograph of her characters one by one into the decor.

Muriel Bordier

France Born in: 1965
Translation in progress

Muriel Bordier aborde toujours ses sujets avec un goût certain pour la dérision et l'humour. Maquette, pâte à modeler, trucage numérique sont autant d'outils avec lesquels l'artiste joue avec malice. Elle élabore de petits mondes, révélant sa propre version d'une réalité qu'elle tourne joyeusement en dérision. La parodie est son registre quand elle évoque le quotidien ; le burlesque et l'humour, ses codes de représentation favoris.

Muriel Bordier explore avec gourmandise le « sens commun ». Les codes culturels de la société occidentale, à travers ses pratiques et sa conception du monde, ont toujours été ses sujets de prédilection. Dans ses travaux les plus récents, elle interroge particulièrement notre rapport à l'image et à la photographie.

Ses Espaces muséaux lui ont valu le prix Arcimboldo 2010 de la photographie. Elle y évoque avec espièglerie les usages et les stéréotypes propres à l'art contemporain. Elle y met en scène des espaces démesurés, présentés comme une contrefaçon du White Cube, où sont confrontés de petits personnages et des œuvres d'art. Ces lieux sans échelle, baignés d'une ambiance aseptisée, à force de vide et de lumière, deviennent des vues de l'esprit, des espaces immatériels, virtuels mais aussi poétiques.
