“I test out the potentialities and limitations of matter. That’s what gives form to my sculptures.”

Exploiting both the architectural accidents and the history of Halle Girard, the installation in situ by Anne-Charlotte Yver is supported by the pillars, beams and floor, all the better to “graft itself onto the site”. A confrontation between disparate materials – concrete, steel, latex, neon lights – echoes the cohabitation of different traces left behind by the successive uses of this industrial site. Her work acts as a “collage to which are added, in a given space, both experiential and constructive strata”. The extreme tension between the materials creates narrative potentials, heightened even further by the presence of a “ghost serigraph on latex”. In this way, Anne-Charlotte Yver’s approach to forms and space reveals veiled, suggestive tensions, and forms bearing hints of desire.

Anne-Charlotte Yver was born in 1987. A graduate of the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts, Paris, she lives and works in Paris and Geneva.
