“N’attendons pas M.Lapatine” solo exhibition at Galerie Antoine Levi.
23 May 2019 - 11 July 2019
N’attendons pas M. Lapatine invites the viewer to a deserted environment, echoing a semi-public space or a deteriorated passage. Private and intimate remains of a personal history are concealed yet exposed behind the gaping door of M. Lapatine’s locker. With suggestive traces of former vigor, phalllic symbolism transforms here into the frail bones of an architectural underbelly.
In times when gentrification and displacement dominate the urban and social landscape, Vasiljeva’s installation, developed in situ, poetically embraces spatial aging, and reflects her ongoing interest in the ambivalent relationship between historical, social and natural temporalities.
