About

Karine Payette builds vast dreamlike settings from hyperrealistic, banal objects in order to produce something narrative that evokes the precariousness of the world. The artist plays and thwarts our vision of things, to make us think about the instability of matter and forms. Mainly using the medium of installation, but also photography and video, Karine Payette produces fictitious environments resembling hanging paintings, which question the environment in which we live. Fascinated by the intrinsic links between the concepts of identity and habitat, she interrogates the notions of comfort and discomfort in a world of perpetual transformation. In her work, Payette builds extensive interior stagings of domicile from an assembly of recycled materials and manufactured objects, with the aim of producing something narrative that evokes the precarious world surrounding us. Through the playfulness and the indiscriminate use of trivial objects, she plays and eludes to our common vision, forcing us to cogitate on the instability of matter and form with which we cohabitate. The stagings of the artist reveal stunning nature and create an unusual dialogue between the chosen objects. Objects implemented evolve in enigmatic spaces that suggest the loss of control. K.Payette explores the potential impact of adversity on our lifestyle and her dreamlike and incongruous universe permits an attentive and critical human society and social behavior and personal.
