The exhibition 'Noémie Goudal' is on display at Arendt House, Luxembourg – Kirchberg until March 2022.
Noémie Goudal’s work explores the relationship between the natural and the artificial, science and imagination, construction and invention. Through her creations, she questions landscapes from different points of view, as if to elaborate a way of looking. Fascinated by the relationship between a physical landscape and its mental elaboration, she plays on the object it represents as well as what it historically represented in collective imaginary. Part of the artist’s work consists of big installations and sculptures she makes from the ground up and photographs on site, thus opening “other spaces”, like those described by philosopher Michel Foucault. The combination of fictional and geographic spaces creates “heterotopias”: concrete places that contain our imagination.
