Jennifer Caubet - Je gage, iels gagent, nous gageons
Retrospective monograph: a panorama of Jennifer Caubet's work over fifteen years.
From printed objects to monumental structures, either in the public space or in the white cube, Jennifer Caubet's pieces produce an effect on any context in which they assemble, disassemble, tighten and expand, construct and undertake to deconstruct.   
This  book  recounts  the  artist's  fifteen  years  of  production  through  the  various  stages  that  make up her practice, from sketches to exhibitions, day-to-day studio practice, and the sharing of skills.    
An interview with Sarah Ihler-Meyer provides introductory insights into Caubet's work, which is examined in essays by Annabela Tournon Zubieta and Isabelle Reiher. Finally, Pedro Morais illuminates the political dimension of the pieces presented in the 2023 exhibition Deux ou trois choses que je sais d'elle at Jousse Entreprise.
Jennifer Caubet (born 1982 in Tonneins, France) graduated from the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris in 2008 after also studying in Toulouse, Barcelona and Tokyo. Thanks to singular productions with specialists, engineers, architects and companies, Jennifer Caubet begins a work of reflection on, in and around space, through sculpture, installation and drawing. The forms and lines that Jennifer Caubet deploys, reenacts or poses in the spaces she crosses, inaugurate the place of the work and the exhibition as territories of relationships not only constructed but to be constructed.
