Isabelle Cornaro is a contemporary artist who made modern landscape painting her speciality during her studies. Since then, she has worked with video, the environment, sculpture, painting and scenography. This allows her to broaden the field of possibilities, always exploring the relationship between the object and its image, the original and its copy. It is quite natural that the Musée de l'Orangerie has chosen the French artist for this edition of Contemporary Counterpoint. The Sequences presented here are the result of cutting large compositions from a single block of vernacular objects in bas relief. The repetitions and differences give rhythm to the panoramic composition like a cinema screen. It is also a reworking of the form of Monet's immersive landscapes, exhibited next door! Moreover, this is not the first time that the master of Impressionism has inspired Isabelle Cornaro: for the Païpe presented at the Palais de Tokyo in 2015, she created an installation of murals in situ, monochromes produced with sprays. The artist was directly inspired by Claude Monet's Meules for this project. An admiration that we find once again in her latest productions!
