VACANCY 3 - The Bedroom Project - One afternoon only!
Vacancy is a very interesting concept developed by Lori Lipsman. Some time to time a tenant leaves an apartment she owns in North Park. She then organizes - with not much time - a "one night" or "one day" show with a group of artists, dividing the apartment into spaces for different projects. Last time, for Vacancy 2, I've got the living room, this time I've got the bedroom. It is an exciting project to work on!
My project for Vacancy 3 is "The Bedroom Project".
Having the space of the (empty) bedroom, I decided it would be interesting to ask a group of artists/friends to send me a jpeg of their bedroom. There was no special requirements except sending a photo of the bedroom where one can see the bed and to send a jpeg large enough to be printed with a good definition. I really am interested in "site-responsive" installations, something the Vacancy series seems to be made for!
People had a week to respond - which is short. But they did! And as I was receiving the photos, I was amazed about how the whole series made sense in its diversity. Beautiful!
I printed the series of 26 photos on a very nice 11x17" matte paper. All the photos, horizontal or vertical, whatever their proportions fit in the same format, which gives a nice unity to the series. Thanks to Janine Free for the great help for printing!
Thank you to all of you who are participating in "The Bedroom Project"!
