The EIB Institute is delighted to announce that Tatiana Trouvé is the new mentor for the 2022 edition of the Artists Development Programme (ADP), the EIB Institute’s residency and talent acceleration initiative for emerging European artists.

Applications for the 2022 edition, which will take place at Cité internationale des arts in Paris, are now open. To know more, visit our website here.

Tatiana Trouvé succeeds previous ADP mentors Jorma Puranen (2019, 2020, 2021), Darren Almond (2018, 2016, 2015), Callum Innes (2017) and Mirosław Bałka (2014, 2013).

Born in 1968 in Cosenza, Tatiana Trouvé is one of today’s most renowned Franco-Italian artists. She lives and works in Paris and is studio professor at Beaux Arts Paris. Prior to this, Trouvé taught at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Lyon and took part in residency programmes in the Netherlands and the United States. Her work features in solo and group shows, biennials, triennials and museums around the world. An upcoming solo exhibition of Trouvé’ practice will take place in the Summer of 2022 at the Musée National d’Art Moderne, Centre Pompidou, Paris.

Trouvé is well-known for her large-scale installations, which often explore the relationship between memory and the materiality of ordinary objects. Her sculptural work incorporates the use of windows, mirrors, bronze and copper and is deeply embedded in her drawings.

The EIB Institute is delighted that she joins the ADP as a mentor for the residency’s 10 year anniversary in 2022.
