For her first solo exhibition at Galerie Charlot, Sabrina Ratté presents a selection of videos and digital prints.
Sabrina Ratté’s works, with their pseudo-Brutalist steps, bring traces of the architect’s work and echo back to the unbuilt constructions of the visionary Étienne-Louis Boullée or even the illusory labyrinths of Piranesi and Escher, where stairs lead deeper into the maze or back impossibly to where they began. Ratté reminds us that however logical modern architecture has seemed, it all originated in that complex, barely fathomable and often-illogical place we call, the human imagination. Between immersion and detachment, her video-portals lead the viewer into impossible places, from the flora and topography of imaginary landscapes to undulating waveforms and strange masses of glitches and plasma, which are unreachable but transforming.
