Ein kleines Paradies, 2012
cardboard, garden soil, wood, clover and video projection
Private and public spheres are constantly invading each other displacing the agreed zone of comfort and acting directly on the way we understand our own space. In ein kleines Paradies, Marie-Eve Levasseur compares with a critical approach, the modern elusions of two different contemporary societies. Her work reconstructs individual desires combining an aerial view over Québec's suburbs and its courtyards flourishing with round and blue swiming pools with the typical fences of the Schrebergarten (Germany) and the promess of happiness it involves from the tricked lucky clovers covering the wall.
