The artist exhibited in Thonon-les-Bains, last summer, at the Chapel of the Visitation and exhibits since September in Belgium in the prestigious exhibition 2050. She participates in the collective exhibition Brief history of the future, associated with that of the Louvre and inspired by the book of Jacques Attali. A projection in the future and its major societal themes of which also speaks the work of Jennifer Brial. What inspires him? "Cartography or cartographic objects, diverted from their primary function, to propose a singular perception of space, from an absurd, didactic or conceptual angle."
The Legend or the construction workshop of the territory, installation, mixed techniques.
In the world of the artist, the signs composing the legends of the IGN maps take human size; Fuller's Projection of the Earth becomes a puzzle of the world, Dymaxion, "flexible and much more egalitarian, where the northern hemisphere ceases to be dominant compared to that of the south, and it is more the connection of continents between them that prevails that their opposition", she says.
Dymaxion version 3, set of 22 prints.
Literally covered with pins, the globe reveals the excesses of geolocation and the omnipresence of the pinned world of Google Map. Terrae cognitae shows, if it were needed, the devastating humor of Jennifer, who pins under a frame, as butterflies are stuck in a collector's box, pieces of cards representing territories visited, nameless, just dated, in the spirit "this summer, I did ...". A revelation.
