Claire Tabouret Examines Multiple Identities in New Venice Show

The latest body of work from the rising French artist.

“The canvas, like a mirror,” wrote curator Kathryn Weir, “throws back the question of how subjects are shaped in relation to the interior worlds and associations of the artist.” Raw and expressive, theatrical and introspective, Claire Tabouret is constantly exploring multiple transformations — of self, other and the collective identities we share.

As part of the ongoing Venice Biennale, the French-born, Los Angeles-based artist is currently showcasing a new body of work titled I am spacious, singing flesh at the Palazzo Cavanis. The multiple identities we carry since childhood is of constant study for Tabouret, who creates striking portraiture, often of a solemn figure or a group of people gazing back at the viewer. Made up of both fluorescent and muddied hues, Tabouret’s figures are sourced from personal memory, along with numerous found imagery across the internet.

In I am spacious, singing flesh, the artist juxtaposes her paintings with a series of devotional objects drawn from archaeological and liturgical collections in Italy. The relationship spurs a “portal into multiple temporalities and subjectivities through which to consider alternative relationships amongst human beings, and between human beings and their environment, in the face of ecological and social crises and in communication with the supernatural,” Weir added.

Coinciding with the exhibition, Almine Rech Editions has published a catalog documenting Tabouret’s latest work. The book is available to purchase at the gallery’s webshop and physical locations for $32 USD. Meanwhile, I am spacious, singing flesh is on view in Venice until November 27.

Elsewhere, Martin Kazanietz presents “Diario Derrota” at ALLCITY.
