For the first art showing in Closet Gallery, Montreal artist and Closet Gallery co-founder Lisa Theriault shared a video installation in the closet called work in the gaps of the net.
The performative video was recorded during the summer of 2016. In the video, the performer ties a net dividing her studio space from her living room. Through the veil of the completed net, the performer then sits to “work”, by writing a reflection. This video is played in a loop in the live installation to show a repetitive mental state of preparation and process.
This project was live steamed July 17-21, 2017 from 10-6 pm EST.
