About the Talk
Paris-based, Italian artist Tatiana Trouvé creates intricate and refined sculptures, installations, and drawings. Frequently using cast materials, such as concrete, copper, and bronze, she exquisitely transforms everyday objects into elegant architectural sculptural forms. Utilizing pencil, crayon, and collage, her drawings serve as an uncanny complement to her three-dimensional practice. On the eve of the opening of her new exhibition, Desire Lines at Doris C. Freedman Plaza in Central Park (March 3 -August 30, 2015), Public Art fund will host a talk with Trouvé on the development of this new work in the context of her engagement with sculpture and public space. With Desire Lines, she has created a large-scale installation that measures the network of pathways that crisscross Central Park, translating this numerical data into spools of colorful rope installed at the entrance to the park. The carefully-crafted and meticulously-researched installation explores the poetics of time, space, and memory for both the individual visitor and the collective experience of this beloved park.
