Charlotte Lagro: The Art-shaped Hole In My Heart

During a residency in Skowhegan in the summer of 2015, Charlotte Lagro discovers the kitchen of one of the oldest houses in the area, the Red Farm. Rustic and timeless, there sits, in-between window, dresser and sideboard, a hefty refrigerator. Incongruous in the setting, hieratic, polished, this modern and purring storeroom will quickly become the object of her attention, to the point of becoming the main focus of her artistic concerns. During the nine weeks of residency, she will invite the artists present, invited theorists and passing guest speakers to talk about it. And they, facing the camera, will join the game, scrutinizing the refrigerator from every angle.

WET Screening is a free online platform for film and video, collectively curated by the members of WET and accompanied by a conversation with the artist in a form of an audio recording. The conversations will form an archive representing a range of voices within contemporary moving image practices. Our goal is to build a community of international artists working with the moving image, in order to support and disseminate their work.
