L'intimité spectacle/Performing Intimacy
Exhibition August 2 to August 30, 2019
Finissage August 29, 2019 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
La Centrale galerie Powerhouse is proud to present L’intimité spectacle/Performing Privacy, by Sarah Thibault, as part of our summer showcase. Interested in site specific installations and their influence on the perception of private and public areas, Thibault uses the domestic sphere as a medium. Often intended to be shown, bourgeois interiors display a clear utopia of property, cleanliness and security. The construction of this type of domestic space does not only aim to satisfy its inhabitants; it is also political, as it unfolds in both private and public spheres. L’intimité spectacle/Performing Privacy explores ways in which household objects and interior design fashion private spaces and allow people to stage themselves, a practice that promotes tenets of social domination. Thibault’s installation comprises of a controlled and protected sprawl of interior elements intended to be observed from an outside point of view. Please join us for the closing reception of the exhibition on August 29 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
