Since 2011, Marjolaine Bourgeois’ artistic practice has merged textiles and printmaking. Bourgeois assembles images from how-to manuals, representing the manufactured, to interrogate the phenomena of overabundance and obsolescence – of images as well as objects. On the one hand, she takes a critical, humorous, and poetic look at the current omnipresence of consumption today. On the other, by experimenting and adapting traditional techniques, she creates unusual juxtapositions.
By reinterpreting and redeploying these techniques, she modernizes a knowledge traditionally associated with women and sustains it.
Resident in Can Serrat from the 29/04 – 20/05/2019
