Liliane Puthod's practice often takes the form of large-scale installations and sculptures using both handmade and industrial materials as a way to confront archaeological and commodified times. She appropriates and manipulates some of society’s existing modes of dissemination, display and production to subtly destabilize what she considers the fabrication of desire and subjectivity in relation to objecthood. Investigating the temporality of everyday life’s consumption, her work questions its perceived value within our globalised world.
