Madeleine Boschan
Une écriture corporelle (magenta), 2017

  • Champagne chalk, dispersion, egg tempera, pigment, plywood
  • 81 x 44 x 21 cm
  • Acquired in 2019

For her new group of architecturally conceived, abstract sculptures and drawings, Madeleine Boschan has chosen a delicate color scheme based on champagne chalk, dispersion, egg tempera and plywood painted with pigment. These objects are gates whose angled standing sides make the forms appear stable yet precarious at the same time. In a next step, the artist has used this basis to create larger-than-life, walk-in sheet-metal sculptures that lend a spatial, artistic form to the actions and communication possibilities between visitors. Boschans sculptural works confront the viewer with their limits of perception. “It is perhaps a feeling of familiarity, but it is one that you should be wary of trusting. Not only the immediate physical, but also the social one. Being a stranger—to oneself and to others—is part of the realization.” (M.B.)
