Charlotte Lagro: The Art-shaped Hole In My Heart

1st – 30th September 2020

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.
