Jean-François Fourtou

Jean-François Fourtou (b. 1964, lives and works in Marrakech and Madrid)
"Mes maisons (My houses)," 2009

Playing with proportion and scale, Jean-François Fourtou's "Houses" includes personal memories of childhood and the fantastical magic of Alice's Wonderland. The installation in Marrakech includes objects from his "Maison du géant" (Giant's House), and the "Maison de poupée" (Doll's house). Fourtou recreates a child's sensation of disorientation in adult spaces in order for it to be re-experienced by a grown viewer.
