Luxembourgian artist Simone Decker likes to make work that’s BIG, playing fast and loose with her audience’s sense of perspective, scale and in many cases, reality. She’s a master of using strange materials to create extraordinary spectacles. In previous shows she’s covered entire exhibition spaces in reflective tape – and clothed all her visitors likewise – turning them all into a vibrant white at the flash of a camera, created a glow in the dark bridge over a canal and covered an entire park with sticky tape. Her work encourages a physical level of participation from her audience, inviting them to climb over objects, try on new outfits and get stuck to trees.
In Shifting Shapes she’s taken objects informed by interior spaces and moved them outdoors for the people of Montpellier to interact with at their leisure. Two giant red and yellow objects flank the city’s river, and cascade through a town square like a couple of wandering playgrounds that everyone’s allowed to enjoy.
