SHOWROOM is an examination of the notion of display and how it affects our perceived public and private worlds. The two spheres of public and private, and the space between the two, is intensely curated, altered, disguised, and more. When objects are used as items of a display to describe a lifestyle, what happens when that very life is placed in a public context--when life is on display?
While the previous work, Form and Function, introduced personal objects into the public space of the institution, SHOWROOM introduces the audience into that same space through a variety of experiences.
SHOWROOM is a four part project including a living room installed in a gallery, a 24-hour filming of the artist in a bedroom that was moved into an institutional space, a living room installed in a local storefront window, recorded conversations broadcast live online, and more. Please see below for images of the different phases.
