Somewhere, 18–12–95 An Unknown 1981
Schinkel Pavillon is pleased to present a new site specific installation by Tatiana Trouvé, where the artist explores the relationship between the exhibition space and its surroundings. The work, entitled The Guardian, brings together several elements fitting one another: a concrete mattress upon a wall, a chair and plastic bags cast in bronze. During a visit in Berlin last year, Tatiana Trouvé could observe the surroundings of the Schinkel Pavillon becoming a vast construction site. Because of the large windows, each one opening on a busy landscape under construction, the viewer could not ignore this environment, even inside the building. From this starting point, Tatiana Trouvé began to explore the possibilities of a dialogue between the pavilion and its surroundings, by moving an environment within the exhibition space.
