Tatiana Trouvé is a contemporary visual artist based in Paris. Born in Cosenza, Italy in 1968, she later spent time living in Senegal, the Netherlands, and the South of France before moving to Paris in the mid nineties. Trouvé’s work spans drawing, sculpture and painting brought together in architecture inspired installations reminiscent of office, laboratory, retail display, warehouse or workshop spaces. She first came to international prominence via her Bureau of Implicit Activities (1997-2003), developed over a number of years, which preserved traces of the evolution of her art practice. Characterised by unexpected shifts in scale, casting of objects and through responsiveness to each particular site, her psychologically-charged scenes continue to evoke imagined ‘activities’ and processes of material transformation, creating eerie states of suspension and an almost palpable sense of absence.
Tatiana Trouvé was winner of the prestigious Marcel Duchamp Prize in 2007 and has exhibited widely internationally including in solo exhibitions at South London Gallery 2010, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris 2008 and Palais de Tokyo, Paris 2007. The major installation of her work is currently on show in Francois Pinault Foundation Punta Della Dogana in Venice 2011-2012. She has recently exhibited at Kunsthalle Dusseldorf, Gremany,2012, Mori Art Museum, Tokyo 2011, and at the Hayward Gallery, London 2010, 29th Sao Paulo Biennale, Brasil 2010, and Turin Triennale, Castello di Rivoli, 2008. Tatiana Trouvé is represented by Gallery Perrotin, Paris.
