From 16 February to 28 April 2024, Fluctuart invites Tania Mouraud on board for a solo exhibition entitled “Dans les vents de l’oubli”. Join us on Thursday 15 February from 6pm for the opening!

Tania Mouraud, one of the pioneers of urban art, is bringing together current and earlier research, using writing as a plastic material to express a desire for freedom and insubordination. The eleven typographical compositions (in as many languages) in the DREAM series (1992-2005), whose source is Martin Luther King’s phrase I have a dream, sit alongside ANSKI (2023) and OYSES TRERN (2023), a mural intervention and a print on textile that take their inspiration from a Yiddish poem by Shalom Anski evoking social inequality.

Through this dialogue, Tania Mouraud explores the history of the revolt against injustice and reveals the universality of the need, still present today, to create a better world. A major contemporary artist on the French and international scene, Tania Mouraud has been working with photography and video since the 1960s, as well as with installation, performance, artist’s books and painting in a wide variety of forms. Her work is permeated by anger at the indignity and destruction of nature.

Her reflections on our position in the world have given rise to a strong, committed body of work that calls out to us all. Her work has been exhibited internationally, as well as in numerous public collections in France, including a retrospective at the Centre Pompidou-Metz in 2015. She is currently represented by Galerie Ceysson & Bénétière.
