Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster (b. 1965, Strasbourg, FR) has come up with an extremely varied range of work ever since she started in the early nineties. It includes film projections, photography and spatial installations, but she also enters into joint ventures with such fellow artists as Pierre Huyghe Liam Gillick and Rikrit Tiravanija. She incorporates different media in her artistic practice such as photography, film and video, and installation. Interested in the transitory interspaces in our everyday environment, her works articulate the relationship between place, object and user/beholder.

She has worked out scenarios for the French chansonnier Christophe, designed displays for Balenciaga's fashion boutiques in New York and Paris and designed a house for a collector in Tokyo. When she won the 'Prix Marcel Duchamp' in 2003 it was a confirmation of her international recognition. The most important group exhibitions she has taken part in include 'Utopia Station', the Venice Biennale (2003), the Tirana Biennale (2003), 'Documenta 11', Kassel (2002), the Liverpool Biennale (2002), the Yokohama Triennale (2001), 'Do it', Museo de Arte Carillo Gil, Mexico DF (2001), 'What If', Moderna Museet, Stockholm (2000), 'Cities on the move', Louisiana Museum, Copenhagen (1999) and the Berlin Biennale (1998). In 2004 she mounted the 'Alphavilles' exhibition at deSingel. It was accompanied by two publications: 'Alphavilles' (208 pages) and 'Tropicalisation' (40 pages). For "Skulptur Projekte" in 2007 in Munster she gave her personal version of the history of this event, creating a theme park composed of 1:4-scale replicas of selected sculptures from exhibitions – concrete and metal quotations of the original works. In 2008 with "TH.2058" in Tate’s Turbine Hall, Dominique Gonzalez Foerster looks 50 years into the future. She is also participating in the Venice Biennale 2009.

Her work for the Ladonia Biennial is a Lecture Performance.
