Marguerite Humeau (FR) is an artist, who is exploring the fictional potential of science.
Reality is becoming increasingly opaque, and could be seen as a "permanent fiction." Speculations about what happens in scientific laboratories are as powerful as reality itself. We invent stories about the experiments that take place there: science-fictions.
Marguerite Humeau's work explores the fictional potential of scientific experiments and the role of science in the creation of contemporary myths. This speculative territory provides many narrative and performative opportunities. The work is introduced as an epic quest, setting up an enigma, documenting the journey, and presenting its final outcomes.
Marguerite Humeau holds a Master in Design Interactions (Royal College of Art, 2011), and a BA from the ENSAAMA in Paris (2007). She also studied for two years at the Design Academy in Eindhoven. Her work was recently exhibited at the Barbican Gallery in London and the Palais de Tokyo in Paris and will be part of the "Talk to Me" exhibition at the MOMA in New York from July 2011.
Marguerite Humeau is presenting her installation Back, here below, formidable at Test_Lab: The Graduation Edition, July 14 2011.
