Many of the artist's pieces reflect her ongoing fascination with architecture, and when working on an exhibition she interacts closely with the structural elements of the venue, opening up new dimensions in our perception of the space. This is the case of the work From here I disappear, a tantalising series of plexiglass doors that form a threshold we can only cross mentally, yet that opens a vista of multiple possibilities. Another theme that characterises Tatiana Trouvé's work is the exploration of time, and forms of temporality. The exhibition includes the work I cento titoli, set to change its title every year for one hundred years, starting in 1968, the year of the artist's birth. The piece is thus both physically present, in the form of two hefty cast bronze suitcases, and intriguingly projected into the future, containing the promise of times, venues and viewers to come. MUSEION's programme thus continues with its exploration of the languages of contemporary sculpture, highlighting this artist's extraordinary ability to draw visitors into a universe of possibilities: an opportunity not only for visitors but also for the museum itself, as an institution in constant growth and transformation.
