Petite is one of Gonzalez-Foerster’s most arresting and seductive works, a typically atmospheric and theatrical installation environment that explores the private and the public worlds of childhood imagination. The sense of awe, anxiety and confusion of being a child in a grown up world is sharply and richly evoked and Gonzalez-Foerster’s compelling command of visual narrative is clearly revealed.
