Since the early 1970s, Jocelyne Alloucherie has developed what she calls complex “configurations” that combine the disciplines of sculpture, architecture, photography, installation, drawing and painting, as a way to conceptually and poetically explore the relationships between image, object and site. Her sculptural and pictorial installations range in size between human-scale and the monumental, and generally incorporate painted, drawn or photographed imagery. Like a “theatre of objects”, her works play on ambiguous components that resemble architectural archetypes, or urban or domestic furniture, without making any direct reference to reality. This ambivalence of images and forms acts as a springboard toward an infinite number of mental associations that place subjectivity at the centre of our experience of the work.
