Marine Huggonier

Work from “Art for Modern Architecture

“In Hugonnier’s Art for Modern Architecture series, the text of each newspaper page is kept intact while Hugonnier’s own silkscreened color blocks replace the photographs. Hugonnier selects newspaper front pages from significant moments in history—from the fall of communism to the end of the Vietnam War or the turn of the millennium. All of these events are associated with iconic photographs that Hugonnier has interpreted and reduced to simple colors that reference a standard Kodak color chart. The artist thus formalizes an image in potential, recalling the viewer’s memory and a collective consciousness. This “coverage” principal therefore works as an open door to a cultural and emotional ground that breaks the narrative structure and temporality.” – Highlight Gallery
