Setting for an Ordinary Life, 2013
An invitation to exhibit at the Musée national Fernand Léger in Biot allowed me to explore post-war social housing, seen not as a symptom of utopia gone wrong but as the Setting for an ordinary life. The exhibition space was filled with architectural forms and elements of furniture. The esthetic world of modernism, based on the grid and thus seen as alienating, seemed positively domestic, intimate and decorative.

LES RÉSERVOIRS, LIMAY
Suburbias, which took place in an art center with two identical exhibition spaces, allowed me to twin Limay with Wheelers Hill in Australia, where I grew up. Presenting the two locations as sister suburbs highlighted the contrast between French and Australian visions of life on the edge of big cities.
