A Room of One's Own
Inspired by Virginia Woolf’s famous essay, the group exhibition candidly acknowledges the obstacles encountered by women artists, so often separated from the artistic discourse of our times regarding financial security, time and individual freedom.
Following the flux of consciousness of Woolf’s writing, the show allows itself to be inhabited by shifting identities and improbable answers. The room opens its hidden doors to fiction, to travels outside of its premises, no longer wanting to host longing gazes on the horizon, but rather becoming the limitless line across which other spaces are born.
The exhibition focuses on transitive spaces of creation as seen by artists whose lives are bound continuously outward. For the artists’ work to be seen, their own rooms are always in an outsider space, where the artists become unknown guests. The domestic allure of the Harlem house transfers also in its artistic laboratory, an inner world unveiling for visitors, conjuring parallel spaces of folding and unfolding realities.
