Inspired by the North and South Poles, as well as by past and present tales of explorers, Nathalie Talec has created a sci-fi universe all her own since the 1980s.
Her works maintain a privileged relationship with real or fictional characters, inhabitable or nomadic structures, and a constant rapport with exploration and travel.
The former Alstom warehouses – emblematic site of Nantes’ working-class history – have been home to an interdisciplinary academic hub devoted to digital culture and design since autumn 2019. In a Silent Way offers a poetic and metaphorical vision of this new space, where two young, feminine figures emerge from the forecourt, evoking a narrative and a fanciful image of scientific knowledge and digital experimentation. They are like allegories of knowledge, the senses, and the thirst for adventures in human pioneering.
NATHALIE TALEC WAS BORN IN 1960, IN PARIS, WHERE SHE LIVES AND WORKS.
SHE IS REPRESENTED BY GALERIE MAUBERT (PARIS).
PERMANENT WORK CREATED IN CO-PRODUCTION WITH LE VOYAGE À NANTES, LA SAMOA, LE GROUPE QUARTUS.
