Louise Mutrel
08.10 - 14.11.2021
Frac Bretagne, Rennes


In resonance with her monumental installation on the façade of the Frac Bretagne, the young artist Louise Mutrel proposes on the Mur du Fonds to return to the scale of the delicate handmade object with the same ingredients that structure her practice: the photographic image, the risographic printing process and vernacular culture.
These 16 cut paper rosettes make up a strange pop and kinetic form.
The initial visual material are images of hubcaps and car rims found on the Internet and then reworked in risography.
The fragility and lightness of the paper are in contradiction with the solidity evoked by the world of car tuning. The shapes become doilies, hypnotic kaleidoscopes inside which Louise Mutrel tries to freeze a movement, reflections, a colour…

The artist

Born in 1992, Louise Mutrel works in Arles and Paris. She graduated from both the Haute École d’Art du Rhin in Strasbourg and the École Nationale Supérieure de Photographie d’Arles. In 2017, in Japan, she collaborated with local artisans by experimenting with Washi, a precious traditional Japanese paper. Since 2020, she has been building a plastic and photographic journey with rizography printing. Her work has been presented notably at La Villette, Paris in 2021, at the Rencontres Internationales de la Photographie d’Arles in 2019 or at the Institut Français de Tokyo in 2018.

Le Mur du Fonds

Devoted to the presentation of editorial initiatives, le Mur du Fonds gives prominence to the collection of multiples and artists’ books from Frac Bretagne as well as to artists, graphic designers, editors and students who develop an original approach to publishing. Very reactive, its programming is thought out in exchange and  with artistic news.
