Dominique Gonzalez Foerster
Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster’s oeuvre explores the very sensitive, personal territories of her own experiences. As a director and visual artist, she views her work as a full-fledged show that weaves links between various disciplines, including film, opera, and literature. Her profoundly poetic works investigate the notions of memory and space, without falling into the realm of mere spectacle.
Working mainly in video, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster elicits feelings among her viewers that arise from often very subtle impressions. The notion of place occupies a central place in her work; her installations are both a way of measuring the space around her and investigating her own identity. Her photographs are like an index that opens a door to a new reading of the world.
