Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster
French, b. 1965
Follow

Taking an experimental approach to the convention of the exhibition, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster creates conceptually driven installations and videos that engage specific events grounded in ideas of time and space. “My approach to art is quite radical,” the Marcel Duchamp prize-winning artist has said. “It has more to do with theater and staging than making objects such as paintings or sculptures.” For her 2008-9 installation in Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall, Gonzalez-Foerster tapped into her long-standing interest in science fiction, imagining a post-apocalyptic version of London in which constant rain has turned the museum into a shelter for people and artworks. Filled with bunk beds, reproductions of public sculptures by Louise Bourgeois, Alexander Calder, and Henry Moore, and science fiction novels, the installation raises questions about the role and vitality of museums and art exhibitions in changing times.
