Large-Scale Installations That Envisage The Human Mind As A Physical Space1 min read

Taking visual inspiration from computer generated images, Mauger uses wood, fabric, tiles, plastic, bricks, and pvc pipes, and assembles them in modular patterns to create a topography that changes the proportions of the space. “I’m trying to bring together and show the similarities between a concrete construction system and mental reasoning”, explained the artist. ‘Adequate System’ is an artwork built using thousands of sculpted PVC pipes, that aims to question our relationship to space and volume. Not dissimilarly, ‘Super Asymmetry’ is an installation using red bricks where the ground appears to concave downward; thereby morphing into a new form. “By using construction material in order to formulate fragments of landscapes, I play with different scales, inviting people to move physically and mentally”. By imposing a physical representation of a mental space upon an exhibition space, Mauger leads us on an intriguing journey of self-actualization.
