SABRINA RATTÉ | HOUSE OF SKIN

Information on the activity

January 3, 2022 to February 13, 2022

From January 3 to February 13, 2022.

Combining digital and analog technologies, Sabrina Ratté and her collaborator Roger Tellier-Craig draw inspiration from the world of David Cronenberg to explore the themes that run through his works: mutation, the fusion of flesh and technologies, bodily fluids, teleportation.

Scraps of failed experiments, organic waste and cables lay on the ground of a strange and desolate landscape. Since the 2010s, Sabrina Ratté has drawn on architectural, literary and cinematographic references to create imaginary spaces evoking brutalism, surrealism and abstraction. In her first works, she excavates and sculpts electrical matter using her video synthesizer to bring out endless corridors or corporate spaces: Sightings (2014), Lieux-dit (2016). Gradually, the artist adds digital technologies to her analog manipulations: Aires (2016), Machine for Living (2018). In House of Skin, 3D elements contain and structure the video matter that resembles human flesh, or what remains of it.
