Do things have an order? This question is the starting point for Nathalie Du Pasquier’s exploration. Hers is a classic ‘journey around my room’, and along the way she sows clues: arrows, numbers, citations from famous authors who come to conclusions that are immediately undercut by other quotations. All around lies a domestic and postmodern landscape of columns and bases, but also of objects of everyday use such as a packet of pasta or a can of beer. The French artist tries to seal off objects in simple or elaborate boxes, but they live a life of their own and run wild. There might be relationships between the objects, invisible symmetries, although ultimately even this is called into doubt. All we can do is admire the artist’s orderly imagination and take act of her conclusions: “This is what I saw.”
