Paris-based artist Isabelle Cornaro (born 1974) works across mediums such as installation, painting, sculpture, video, wall painting and drawing to investigate themes of representation, perceptual experience and reproduction. Cornaro also explores the translation of forms and languages, for example an old master painting into a 3D installation, a film into a graphic score or the vocabulary of Minimalism into a more emotional language. Informed by her studies of Renaissance and classical aesthetics, Cornaro is often drawn to the still life genre, constructing her objects in a manner that invites a multiplicity of vantage points. Ranging across Cornaro’s manifold oeuvre, this monograph includes essays by art critic Tim Griffin and art historian Cécile Debray; interviews with curator Fabrice Stroun and editor Clément Dirié; as well as comprehensive descriptive texts by art critic Benjamin Thorel.
