The Contemporary Dayton is proud to present the US premiere of Ohio-based feminist artist and writer Carmen Winant’s work, The neighbor, the friend, the lover.
Originally created for a group show at Kunsthal Charlottenborg-Denmark titled Witch Hunt, the installation employs found images to explore women’s sexuality as a source of power and agency as well as a threat to heteropatriarchal violence and domination. In essence, the work opens an aperture onto the witch hunt as a misogynistic and often anti-sematic historical presence.
Consisting of found, double sided images illuminated on lightboxes and displayed in a darkened gallery, the exhibition’s suggestive presentation creates an ambiguous but at the same time poetic and finely tuned story.
Winant's The neighbor, the friend, the lover will be showing at The Contemporary Dayton from January 13 through March 26, 2023.
