Marine Huggonier.

"Marine Hugonnier ...explores the relationship between text and image, between the descriptive and deceptive qualities of visuals and language. For her, the image always carries the promise of an excess of meaning, a resistance to its subjection to a purpose of commerce, propaganda and ideology – in short, the spectacle.

Art for Modern Architecture (2004–ongoing) investigates the role of the image, its abilities and its limitations and reverses the process by obstructing the press images on the front page of a week’s worth of newspapers " [source]

This body of work takes me straight back to dissecting the construction of meaning and value in narratives and art in my undergraduate career as a Peace and Conflict Studies major. I find it incredibly thought provoking, and hope you will too on this Monday morning.
