Marguerite Humeau creates surreal large scale installations that explore ideas of past, present, life and death.
The French artist invited us to her London studio before visiting the Sir John Soane Museum.
Marguerite has transformed Tate Britain’s gallery into part temple, part laboratory for the industrial production of an elixir for eternal life. The exhibition features two sculptures based on Egyptian gods: Tawret and Wadjet (King Cobra) alongside Cleopatra’s resuscitated voice and walls painted with black mamba venom.
Art Now is a series of exhibitions at Tate Britain focusing on new work by emerging artists. Since the 1990s, Art Now has recognized talent at its outset and provides a platform for artists who have gone on to become established figures in the British and international art scene.
