Women & Their Work presents Julie Libersat: "Paved Paradise" opening reception
In "Paved Paradise," Julie Libersat explores symmetry and patterns within the landscape of late capitalism. Using the shopping mall and the parking lot as formal and conceptual frameworks, the interactive video installation explores a suburban vernacular that presents consumption as a modern form of worship.
"Paved Paradise" is part of an ongoing series of parking lot mazes executed through various virtual and physical mediums. Libersat explores everyday landscapes and infrastructure to reflect on our cultural, social, and economic orientations. "Paved Paradise" presents the shopping mall as a temple of the golden age of capitalism and the parking lot as a labyrinth.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through April 19.
