Madelaine describes her window project "Showroom".
For the Window on Art project, my SHOWROOM IV project explores the notion of display and the perceived public and private worlds displays exist in.
The two spheres of the public and the private, and the space between the two, is intensely curated, altered, and disguised. Objects are used as items on display to describe, suggest, or project a lifestyle or an identity. Instead of looking at the objects however, SHOWROOM IV examines the hidden and constructed lifestyle by placing that very life on display. What happens when a private life is placed in a public context?
Viewers are invited to enter the window space and join me for a coffee or tea and conversation. I am encouraging participation and interactions inside the window to further explore our collective experiences between public and private worlds.
