DESCRIPTION

Agathe Snow was born in Corsica and lives in New York. Her work is based on narratives of environmental collapse, sexual dysfunction, religious or moral decay, and physical disorientation, and simultaneously invokes netherworlds of decrepit horror as well as suggestions for rescue, celebration, and survival. Her installations typically include one or two large-scale sculptures accompanied by smaller pieces and performances.
She recently took part in the Whitney Biennial in New York.

"Views From the Top, Vertigo and Constellations" is the fourth phase in a wider project devoted to the spirit of Leonardo da Vinci and the American Dream. For the rooms at Jeu de Paume, the artist has created an installation linking the mezzanine and the basement, and forming a space dedicated to ideas and thought, directed towards the hope of developing a new universe where rebirth might be possible – “a particular state of mind rid of all superfluous accessories, of boredom, moralism and fatalism; an as yet nameless concept to be considered as an epoch that lies in the future.”
