Tracy Mackenna

Invasions naturelles

20 - 27 November 1994

In 1994, for the first exhibition organized by artconnexion, the Scottish artist Tracy Mackenna exhibited various visual and written elements as well as a video installation. Her work explored the fields of language and place, transfer and translation.

Working in a space that is not a traditional gallery is sometimes challenging, but it is possible to transcend certain boundaries. Tracy Mackenna was attentive to the specific nature of the space in question (the apartment at 10-12 rue du Priez), ready to release its potential : for the first time the site space was perceived as a space of communication and exchange, a place for research and experimentation in art.
