Holder of a degree in architecture, with a passion for models and utopic cities, through her work Juliette Rault puts on a miniature stage made-up stories about our relationship with religion, popular icons, death, sex and injustices of the world.
Very dramatic, these dioramas deal with serious topics with poetry, humor and false naivety – to better sugar the pill.
For her 139 art space exhibit, she decided to ”get out of her little boxes” to occupy the big case. A transition. Her last stay in London inspired the creation of ”White Riot”, in reference to a Clash song. This immaculate white installation seems very peaceful and discreet at first, but explodes at night.
In London, the artist was seduced by the gap, the crack between the official British society and the profuse alternative culture, which seems to approach some freedom. Freedom of expression, at least.
This counterculture is bubbling under the eye of the Queen, world icon, mother figure, both omnipresent and ghost-like, stuck in her official (ceremonial) role. To a little French girl, this role looks both obsolete and very mysterious.
