French artists

Muriel Bordier always approaches her subjects with a certain taste for derision and humor. Model, plasticine, digital special effects are all tools with which the artist plays with malice. She constructs small worlds, revealing her own version of a reality which she mockingly mocks. Parody is its register when it evokes the everyday; burlesque and humor, his favorite codes of representation.


Muriel Bordier greedily explores “common sense”. The cultural codes of Western society, through its practices and its conception of the world, have always been his favorite subjects. In her most recent works, she particularly questions our relationship to image and photography.


His Museum spaces won him the 2010 Arcimboldo Prize for photography. She playfully evokes the uses and stereotypes specific to contemporary art. She stages disproportionate spaces, presented as a counterfeit of the White Cube, where small characters and works of art are confronted. These places without scale, bathed in a sanitized atmosphere, by dint of emptiness and light, become views of the mind, intangible spaces, virtual but also poetic.
