Jean-François Fourtou
“Mes maisons (My houses),” 2009

[عربي] [English] [italiano]

Playing with proportion and scale, Jean-François Fourtou’s houses are inspired by personal memories of childhood and the disproportion of Alice’s Wonderland. The installation at Palais Bahia includes objects from his "Maison du géant" (Giant’s house) while the permanent site of the original work located near Marrakech also remained accessible as part of the exhibition. Using architectural and sculptural elements, Fourtou’s work recreates a child’s sensation of disorientation in adult spaces in order for it to be re-experienced.
