Super Window Project, Kyoto - 2009
The exhibition Pays Extérieurs is a geographic, physical and conceptual experience revolving around the idea of journeys.
A journey of the meaning, of its impact, as a constitutive element of the production of principles and structures of a work in which the introduction of the notion of improvisation would induce an emergency and an acceleration of its very principles. A hastening. Sandrine Pelletier’s work was originally borne through the production of objects rehashing elaboration methods borrowed from folk art and Arts & Crafts from their most noble to their most trivial accepted meaning, to erect a body of autonomous pieces, related to the idea of a misappropriation and to an experimentation of the limits of materials, from the initial embroideries (Wild Boys, 2002-2004, Mysanthropy, 2005) to the monumental thread-based installations (GoodBye Horses, 2009).
