Marie-Jeanne Hoffner’s drawings, wall drawings and architectural installations reflect a perception of space as map, living space and place for the body. Her translation of space is both physical and metaphysical. On one hand, lines, plans and volumes propose a concrete experience of space, whereas on the other, semantic superimposition and fake perspective suggest an imaginary space that doubles our first apprehension of reality. The layout, removal, transparency and folding of materials are recurrent notions in Hoffner’s work, allowing her to approach architecture through its structural elements. This combination of formal rigour and physicality makes Marie-Jeanne Hoffner’s work an example of lively practice both constructed and sensitive.
Marie-Jeanne Hoffner’s recent monography PLANS was launch last year at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris (Roven édition and distributed by Les presses du réel) is a french and english edition, presenting the artist work over the last 5 years.
