Quote

“Gonzalez-Foerster has repeatedly used space as a central feature of her artistic practice. Her work hails from multiple places, sites, and milieus and is constructed from the storehouse of feelings that we all carry inside. It unapologetically alludes to emotional values while generating a sensible landscape within the spectator. From her vast body of work, it is specifically the environments that provoke the formation of these mental-affective landscapes, and with which we are here concerned.” Pamela Echeverria Parkett No. 80, 2007

About

“Providing insights into and voyeuristic perspectives of contemporary metropolitan life, the work of Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster possesses a beguiling intimacy and subtlety. Inspired by film literature, art history, and architecture, her cross-disciplinary practice includes installation, video, collaborative work, and film. Rather than attempting to make something new, Gonzalez-Foerster prefers to stage scenarios. Her environments – including her Parkett project “Calendario 2020, 2007”, a silkscreen calendar for 12 months in 12 years, with two additional prints by Philippe Parreno – aim to provoke emotional and mental landscapes in the viewer.” -Artspace
