PARIS.- Ana Mazzei’s solo exhibition Love Scene, Crime Scene at gb agency is based upon a direct appeal to the senses by means of colour, shape, sound and movement. Firmly rooted in a studio practice, Mazzei’s work revels in its process and explores how disparate ideas and perceptions take on a physical form and materialize this state into a mise-en-scène in which sculpture acts as both actor and set piece to a quiet drama.

To Ana Mazzei, art, architecture and landscapes construct a fiction that connects them, resulting in installations, paintings and objects. Some of the works operate on a smaller scale, such as the series of objects arranged on the floor formed by groups of small shapes made of felt, concrete or wood similar to the architectural models of old cities, amphitheaters or monuments. Beyond the formalist exercises, these works invoke unidentified stories that suggest hidden and impenetrable archetypal structures - they are like pieces and fragments of myths, lives and fictions.

For her show at gb agency, the artist is exhibiting Love Scene Crime Scene, consisting of an inside landscape illuminated by pale light. This somewhat theatrical setting acts as a stage for her wood sculptures to inhabit a seductively composed ambience, filled with timber sculptures, wooden reliefs, a video and sound.

This staging works as an invitation to the spectator to experience an unknown role that is reserved for them. Just like the sculptures, they are important and active participants in this fictional space – brimming with a mischievous sense of recognition.

Are we coming into a love nest? Or at an unsolved crime scene? Mazzei, for her part, does not answer these questions but rather bombards the visitor with new ones as they pop up through the malleable structure of the installation. As in life – or as in theater – the scene here never remains the same, one's feelings are interchangeable and the experience offered by the artist always feels like a new one, constant and uninterrupted.
