Exhibition at the MuMA (Le Havre): The Human Frame/A Taille Humaine, Dec 6 – 8 (Part 1)

Nora Herting and I put on a 2-day, 3-night exhibition at the Musée d’art moderne André Malraux (the MuMa) in Le Havre, France from Dec. 6 – 8.

Me, our coordinator Severine Routel, and Nora Herting at the vernissage (opening).

I displayed two bodies of work; this post will focus on my large installation, Façade, which consisted of three sections of cut paper buildings spanning approximately 14m/45 feet with photographs of Le Havre projected onto each section in a continuous loop. I will have video and more discussion of the installation on my website soon, so check there in a day or two! (www.stephaniebeck.org)

The first photos are of the buildings in my studio, followed by images from the exhibition and then de-installation.

It was an amazing opportunity to really stretch myself and my work and has inspired numerous ideas for future installations. Je suis tres content!

A big merci beaucoup to Severine Routel and her colleagues, the city of Le Havre, The MuMA, the French Institute and Triangle Arts Association for the space, time, opportunity and extensive support! Special projector thanks as well to the MuMA, the School of the Arts, the Theater of City Hall, and Vincent Legallais. Special construction thanks to Marine Eggiman.

Part II to come, with images from my second body of work; Library: Le Havre.
