Jeanne Susplugas : Tout semblait pourtant si calme

Jeanne Susplugas, Flying House, 2023.
When she installs houses in her exhibitions, a whole host of items are laid on the ground, such as a racket, a necklace, a Swiss army knife or even medicines. These are consumer objects that we thought we knew, and which then generate a feeling of uneasiness or even worry. Behind shapes that seem attractive at first sight, Jeanne Susplugas likes to confront her audiences with who they really are. Her works occupy the gardens, curtain walls and the Saint-Elme Chapel – the only indoor space in the exhibition. It’s a surprising experience, and an opportunity to revisit this imposing 16th-century construction.
