The Fondation d'entreprise Ricard gives carte blanche to the artist Emmanuelle Lainé to invest the Panorama of the Friche la Belle de Mai in Marseille. For this exhibition, Emmanuelle Lainé combines familiar objects, organic materials and life-size images to create a complex painting that explores the relationships between digital images, art exhibitions and contemporary non-places.
The artist's conception of her immersive installations comes partly from the culture of digital imaging. The principle of superimposition by layer (of the image) is deployed and extended to the entire installation. «I think of the spaces I create as workspaces or shelters. I like the idea that the spaces between the layers of the image can be interstices where you could hide or disappear. I also like the fact that these layers create a kind of microarchitecture.»
In this installation specifically designed for the Panorama space, Emmanuelle Lainé deals with the borderline between our personal and professional lives. Featuring a selection of objects from the MUCEM collections, alongside intimate household items, it refers to contemporary working environments in open-spaces; spaces that house a combination of creative and prosaic activities.
