Le Lapin Turquoise

Past: December 10, 2011 → January 21, 2012

No question, Ingrid Luche’s works disconcert: in her sculptures and installations the viewer recognises the everyday functional forms she takes her inspiration from, but those forms are marked out by a gap that is none other than the one separating reality from dream. The spaces she creates in her exhibitions are remanences of places passed through and permeated with a now unconscious experience.

The Turquoise Rabbit, her third solo exhibition at Air de Paris, is based on reminiscences of a museumlike world; a distinctive museum in which the exhibits are affected by the magical powers they supposedly represent: loose-fitting garments inspired by Amerindian ritual dances (the Ghost Dresses series), ethnography-inflected sculpture (Monsieur Pigman) and magic objects (Le Lapin Turquoise). Here the museum is no longer a detached presentation of distant objects, but an experience in its own right; a place not of knowledge but of recognition for the viewer. A space that speaks to us of our desires and our memories, and sketches a collective history of the present time: a history in which accounts of the past live on like markers of the history we want to see now.
