Two and a half dimensions is a singular approach towards the reappropriation of the real by Perrine Lievens. In addition to their elegance, the strength of her works can be found in their capacity to illuminate the intrinsic fragility of objects or subjects at hand. By playing with uncommon associations between form and material, her work ruptures the tracks of the real and guides the viewer towards a dream-like apprehension of their surroundings. This deceptively innocent subversion of our relations with the ordinary world is not an invitation towards a phantasmagoric voyage but rather a celebration of the banal through a plastic lyricism.
Born in France in 1981, Perrine Lievens completed her studies at L'École Nationale Supérieure des beaux-arts de Paris. Recently, she was honored with the International Takifuji Art Award and the prestigious LVHM young artist award. Her work has been exhibited most notably at the Istanbul Biennale Off and Musée Mariscal Andrés A Caceres ( Peru )>
