Galerie Perrotin presents “House of Leaves”, a solo exhibition featuring a new series of sculptures and drawings by the artist Tatiana Trouvé. The show displays the series “The Unremembered [Les Dessouvenus]”, begun on 2013, bringing us back to memory, its deficiencies and even its loss. Forgetting means to lose the use of one’s memory and hence living in a depopulated present which the past no longer penetrates, and in which events, people, things and places are disconnected. Here, the ink on the black paper is dissolved by drips of bleach, creating patches that reveal the potential of the drawing. “The unremembered” drawings suggests spiritualist apparitions and old X-ray images. The objects that structure their spaces borrow from elements of a personal iconography involved in the creation of the artist’s work.
