BARBIE, A VISIT TO THE MUSEUM
The title of Stéphane Kouchian’s new project, sounds like a slogan. Kouchian uses his art to subvert the logic behind the famous Barbie doll set, which gets an updated version. Started in 2008 and conceived like a complete set, the work consists of several architectural or artistic elements that recreate a White Cube in an imaginary museum. In this small-scale museum space, the artist makes the icon his own, setting her against miniature versions of his own works.
