We are pleased to announce an exhibition Landscape Living Room by Sarah Thibault on March 24 (Saturday) & 25 (Sun), as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.
Sarah Thibault is a visual artist based in Quebec City, Canada. Having a background in sculpture as well as in jewelry, she is now exploring the object in diverse mediums. Sarah has exhibited her work in solo and group exhibitions in different Canadian cities, among which Montreal, Toronto and Lévis. She also took part in several artist residencies in Canada.
Her artistic practice is driven by an appropriation of the visual culture of power and thereby is rooted in an empowerment process that questions our relationship to that power. Working from a feminist maxim that says that the personal is political, Sarah regularly uses references to the interior and the body adornment in unusual contexts to signify this blurring between the private and the public. Her work tends now to push further that ambiguity emanating from that confrontation of intimacy and ostentation.
Here are some words from the artist herself.
This project consists in a site-specific installation. Using rice straw and furniture pieces, I will invest the space with references of indoor and outdoor decors. By creating this ambiguous scene confronting intimacy and ostentation, I intend to work with the blurred line that separates domestic and natural environments.
