Room

ROOM_postcard

 

Room was a project commission by The Kitchen as a performance and video installation for Wynne Greenwood's art-punk band Tracy + The Plastics. For the week-long residency the gallery space became an immersive installation emulating a living room using material such as wood, foam, carpet and video projection, constructed in collaboration with sculpture and installation artist Fawn Krieger. Room served as a video installation open to the public by day, and a stage for the band's performances by night.

 

The installation and performances were geared towards addressing topics of gender identity and feminism through the staging of a space that was intended to hearken back to 1970's radical feminism and the den's and basements that women would gather in to hold consciousness-raising meetings.
