Artists Remake the World
The Author

The Author : Isabelle Rodriguez


After a degree at the Sorbonne and a Master’s degree of Arts at the University of Saint-Etienne, Isabelle Rodriguez committed herself in a second cycle at the Nîmes’ Art School where she passed a National Postgraduate degree in Graphic Arts in June 2017, with the jury’s congratulations. She develops stories that she delivers orally, presenting archives – photographs, films, acts of civil or judicial registry – and relating her expeditions across Europe in search of history’s forgotten figures. She chooses to explore further her link to writing by integrating the Master’s degree of literature creation in Le Havre, jointly offered by the University and ESADHaR. Today and in this context, she works on writing a novel that tells, among other things, how an orphanage was completely decimated by the Spanish flu, while going on with her graphic work in her studio of Le Havre.

The Museum of Failure opened in June 2017 in Sweden, in Helsingborg, in the dynamic region of Sund. It is so successful that a second site opened in Los Angeles to present objects from this unusual collection. First housed in the walls of the very serious Museum of Art and Design, the collection now has a dedicated space in the gigantic complex Hollywood and Highland Center. In the country of success stories, the American Museum of Failure attracted thousands of visitors, just like the traveling exhibition around the world.
