Ardenome, Former Salt Granary, 2 rue Rempart Saint-Lazare, Avignon
Near the Palais des Papes
The common thread of this exhibition is our inner world, physical or psychological, which the artist perceives as an inhabited space and symbolizes with an oversized house.
Suspended from the ceiling of the salt granary, this gigantic sculpture, the archetypal detached house found in children’s drawings, seems to want to float to the sky like a balloon, but remains weighed down by a paraphernalia of objects.
From the house to the brain, Jeanne Susplugas weaves fine similarities that can be found from one work to the next: in the drawings (In My Brain), in the light cage (Light House), or in the immersive installation (I’ll Sleep When I Am Dead), the brain-house is our intimate space, both a soothing refuge and the place of all the hidden tensions of our relationship with others.
Thanks to the magic of virtual reality, visitors can physically immerse themselves in a labyrinth of synapses and neurons and walk through the heart of human “thoughts” materialized by drawings that resemble pictograms.
