Michal Rovner views the past as a perpetual movement. Discussing her work, she says “What I want to do is find the connection with stones. It’s the temporal process that interests me most, and the Louvre allows for a temporal and spatial shift from one room to another, one period to another.”
Michal Rovner chose to install her exhibition at the Louvre in the Department of Near Eastern Antiquities and the medieval moat. She creates her works in situ, projecting her videos directly onto the walls and ancient objects. She proceeds through stratification, superposing the palace facades and foundations, sparking a dialogue between her moving figures and the ancient inscriptions on steles and sarcophagi.
With her politically committed, sensitive, and meditative work, Michal Rovner abolishes the borders between periods and cultures.
