Film projections, photography and spatial installations,

DOMINIQUE GONZALEZ-FOERSTER, born in 1965, has come up with an extremely varied range of work ever since she started in the early nineties. It includes film projections, photography and spatial installations, but she also enters into joint ventures with fellow artists as Pierre Huyghe, Liam Gillick and Rikrit Tiravanija. She has worked out scenarios for the French chansonnier Christophe, designed displays for Balenciaga's fashion boutiques in New York and Paris and designed a house for a collector in Tokyo. Her work is characterized by a quiet, intimate interrogation of contemporary urban life. Exploring cinematic conventions, temporality and subjective experience, her short films and installations recreate specific moments in which individuals intersect with places - highlighting the individual nuances of cultural and social contexts.
