Charlotte Dualé

Gluckskunst, 2015

650* Euro

In Charlotte Dualé’s (*1982 in Paris, France, lives and works in Berlin, Germany) installed arrangements, different elements that often refer to a photograph stand in relation to each other. Her pieces describe the emotional state of people faltering under the strong pressure of an achievement-oriented society. The edition Gluckskunst captures this critique of society in a positive manner by depicting a fortune cookie that seems to generate hope at the end of the tunnel. On the surface of a pattern which appears to be taken from a jockey suit are different sentences that are initially hidden or only revealed – like a fortune cookie – after the object is purchased. The jockey suit stands for performance and competition, while the fortune cookie stands for the chance that arises in life and to which one can resort when things aren’t going too well. The work questions the relation between what one deserves and the happiness, emulation, and fatalism of chance.
