In “A Room of One’s Own”, Virginia Woolf discusses the cruciality of claiming a private room for each woman of her own to create—particularly to write—while remaining unrestrained from demands of the patriarchal opinion. While her argument heavily refers to brick-and-mortar rooms, harboring of ephemeral chambers along the gnarly paths of imagination equally promises boundless territories for one to channel creative outlets. On the other hand, Woolf’s text projects contentious arguments about self-ostracism from the public as well as numbness towards societal dynamics.
The artworks in “A Room of One’s Own: An Exhibition” refer to Woolf’s influential text via straightforward or allegorical methods and highlight her ground in various forms of aesthetics, while articulating the modes of introspection and discernment.
“A Room of One’s Own: An Exhibition” will be on view through July 28th.

SUITES FOR UNINTENDED ARCHEOLOGY

 

Opening reception Friday, May 22, 7 – 9 pm.

The Vazquez Building
5 Central Ave, Brooklyn, New York 11206 
(L train Morgan stop)

 

The Vazquez Building is pleased to present an installation by Levan Mindiashvili “Suites for Unintended Archeology,” his second individual project in New York.

In this exhibition the artist further investigates public and private spaces and their influence on formation of our identity. It focuses on issues that we deal with on almost everyday basis — the sense of place, idea of ‘home,’ gentrification and displacement, as for many of us, today a sense of place is more precisely identified as a sense of displacement — triggered whether by the economics of gentrification or politics.

Abstract shapes of reflected buildings in his paintings and hermetic remnants of what once might have been a house in his sculptures, is an attempt to create a space, an open field, for reflection and exploration of personal stories.

The show can be visited through Sunday, May 31.
