ABOUT

In her fifth solo show with the gallery, Latifa Echakhch transforms the space into a concert stage, with black perimeter walls and a black carpet covering the floor. 
Lighting trusses, usually perceived as me


rely technical elements of stage design, are assuming a central function. Assembled into doors, bridges and totemic objects, they invite the viewer to walk into a forest of beams and apparatus. The severe geometry and cold technicality of this installation is undermined by clothing and other objects that appear to be thrown haphazardly on the trusses, and by a cotton scenario depicting a sunset. These elements convey the idea that we are observing the remnants of an event that happened in our absence - a concert stage, the morning after the performance has taken place.
