Mélanie Matranga

  • The work of Mélanie Matranga requires a period of adaptation for the observer, not in terms of intellectual or theoretical cognizance — the forms, objects and situations are both quotidian and universal — but rather in terms of emotional and sentimental range. Run through with threads and fluxes of affects, the artist’s work constructs a distance that must be negotiated, one which electrifies the interstice between the private sphere and the public space, between intimacy and togetherness, introspection and the staging of the self. Matranga’s work has the capacity to reflect on the present state of sensation, and the perpetual adjustments taking place between the real and the virtual. She reveals the complexity of sentiment in an immediate and sensitive way. She creates spaces for thought, where bodies communicate with one another when words do not suffice.
