LES CONTES CRUELS DE PAULA REGO

Musée de l'Orangerie, 2018

The scenographic project develops around two axes borrowed directly from the pictorial universe of Paula Rego: the intimate space of the workshop and the present body. A device based both on the articulation of a structured thematic itinerary and the lightness of a scenography that fades behind the works.

A set of thin, self-supported picture rail, of a structure that looks similar to a honeycomb, is added to the exhibition space, formally postponing certain angles in situ of the room. It is a question of echoing the construction of Paula Rego’s works and of proposing to the visitor to enter in intimacy with them while evoking in a subjective way the space of the workshop.
