Emmanuelle Lainé

Back to the list

b. 1973; lives and works in Paris (France)

Emmanuelle Lainé’s works and exhibitions are always intimately linked to the space they are set in and the objects they contain. Working through a unique relationship with images and things, the artist presents, in a process similar to that of the laboratory or the worksite, the crystallisation of an infinite, intuitive, sculptural moment amid the world’s relentless hurly-burly.

Lainé’s work has recently been on show at the Fondation d’Entreprise Ricard (Paris), La  Galerie (Noisy-le-Sec), C-o-m-p-o-s-i-t-e (Brussels), and at the Palais de Tokyo and the Belleville Biennial (Paris).

With the support of Fondation d’entreprise Ricard, Paris, the assistance of Bluestar Silicones and ATC groupe, partners of the 13th Biennale de Lyon, and the participation of photographer André Morin

La vie moderne

Sains titre, Création Biennale 2015

Working through a unique relationship with images and things, Emmanuelle Lainé presents, in a process similar to that of the laboratory or the worksite, the crystallisation of an infinite, intuitive, sculptural moment amid the world’s relentless hurly-burly. All Emmanuelle Lainé’s works are situations that are discovered and developed on-site. She worked for more than three weeks before the opening of the Biennale to turn the macLYON into an artists’ studio. Using elements she had made beforehand (flat screens, moulded in silicone – the tubs are still around) and others that she “arranged” on the spot (pieces of furniture, plants, packing cases, for example), she set up a vast treasure hunt that she kept adjusting and correcting, until she finally made a wide-view photograph of her creative process. That photograph was then fixed to the wall as a huge trompe-l’œil. Then once again the whole mise en scène was destructured and improved in almost every detail. On the same principle as an edited film, each component was, from that moment on, in its place and couldn’t be placed anywhere else without ruining the balance of the work, giving the visitor free rein to see these objects, now become images, then become objects again, and out of them to create narratives awaiting resolution and endless landscapes.
