Tatiana Lecomte’s exhibition at the LENTOS takes 1938 as its point of departure. In 2018, 80 years after Austria’s “Anschluss” to Nazi Germany, the artist sets to work in the Photo Archive of the Museums of the City of Linz. What will be of special interest to her is analogue pictorial material of the kind normally used in the documentation of historical and political topics and our collective memory. The focus on pictorial media used in an official context and on private snapshots may reveal fissures and ruptures in the received presentation of history.
Tatiana Lecomte was born in Bordeaux in 1971. She studied at the Académie des Beaux-Arts in Lyon, the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam.
