Benaki Museum Mentis - deshabille: Maria Loizidou

In between the gesture of making and the gesture of use, the artist proposes a system of narrative production. The deshabille proposal is articulated with a book, an audio interaction and the work of the artist and the curator as caretakers of the interior of a light industry passementerie in action.
They impose this restrictive condition upon themselves in order to serve as a tool in comprehension practice as well as to facilitate the immersion of the viewer to the accumulated layers of passementerie production during the one hundred and forty-four years operation of the Mentis light industry.
The book takes the form of a cahier francais, a liabilities registration record of a daily routine in contention. A personal alphabet, an alternative abecedaire, like the ones stacked in the space.
 
The exhibition will be on view until June 29, 2017
