The exhibition by Tatiana Trouvé (1968, Cosenza) filled the first and second floors of the museum, and focused on series of works representative of the artist’s oeuvre. At the heart of her work is the creation of spaces that produce an unsettling psychological effect. A good example is Polders, which grafts elements of disparate worlds, such as medicine and sports, onto preexisting environments. A large space on the first floor was also overwhelmed by a huge metal structure exhibiting forty-nine large-format drawings. The drawings, which were projected, superimposed, and made into collages on different types of paper or accompanied by tin or copper wires, are saturated with memory. Much of Trouvé’s art causes the viewer’s eye to travel. Vision is tested by some of her drawings and installations, with objects either floating in the air or being frozen in mid-fall. The same challenge is experienced with mirror effects, split views, and false perspectives incorporated into her sculptures.
