The group exhibition “Autour de ma chambre” evokes a conversation about the interiority and exteriority, extending them from an architectural notion towards the idea of space as a lieu of representation through diverse media.
The work of Women’s History Museum serves to deconstruct the surroundings while translating it into something rather abstract through the process of patching and sourcing found objects and textiles.
The sculptural work of Christiane Blattmann evokes the gesture of claiming a physical space. She plays around with the formal language of a sculptural object and questions textile as a material and immaterial concept.
Femke Dekkers marks out sections of space through the camera: within these markings, she tentatively creates compositions that produce a frontal and balanced image. Sometimes she seems to be painting more than taking photographs, with the space in front of the lens as her canvas.
