Joséphine Wister Faure


Boîte Noire Gallery is pleased to present an exclusive viewing of Joséphine Wister Faure’s installation entitled Last Witness. This series of black boxes containing closed and finite worlds opens an infinite mental space. A peephole compels each viewer to explore a boundless scene filled with enigmatic hints. One comes back from these paralleled journeys with different hypotheses, doubts, sensations of space, feelings of strangeness and fleeting impressions. This series was previously shown at David Lynch's Silencio Club in Paris.

In Joséphine's words: “My work is built around experiments on narration, through different forms of expression: video, performance, installation, sculpture, usually using a life-size scale but here, the pieces called Last Witness are an incursion into the intimate field of the minute".

French-American artist Joséphine Wister Faure has a Bachelor of Visual Arts from the University of Vermont and studied at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts of Paris. She has taken part in various collective exhibitions in France at the Fondation d’Entreprise Ricard, Le Plateau, Centre Pompidou and Silencio. Her work has been exhibited in Europe, the United States, and China. Joséphine Wister Faure is now based in Los Angeles; she was recently part of a group exhibition at Paris-Berlin and is currently showcasing her work at Boîte Noire Gallery.
