Isabelle Cornaro

Through film, sculpture, drawing and painting, Isabelle Cornaro (born 1974 in France, lives and works in Paris) re-evaluates objects by exploring the tensions between their aesthetic and cultural value and by questioning meaning through formal and conceptual modes of display. Cornaro uses scanning, photography and plaster casting as her methods of production. Through meticulous arrangements, she investigates the properties of objects and the historicity they can point to or steer away from.
