Exhibition, New Museum, New York, USA, until 25 January 2015.
Lili Reynaud-Dewar creates environments and situations in which the body is often present, expressing vulnerability and empowerment and collapsing public and private space. Her works evolve through a range of mediums such as performance, video, installation, sound, and literature. For her, the relationship between exposure and camouflage enables the challenging of established conventions relating to the body, sexuality, power relations, and institutional spaces, with her recent installations recreating domestic environments. For this exhibition, among other works are four site-specific videos shot on each floor of the museum, in which she moves and dances alone through the building, camouflaging herself in the empty gallery spaces during the transition period between exhibitions.
