Consultations conducted in English
Using the ( absent) works of the exhibition : “A Better You” in conjunction with some pieces from the permanent collection of the museum as an interpretive system, JL offers personal consultations to people dedicatied to discussing a problem.
What is the resonance of an exhibition? The gathering of works together for an exhibition or a permanent collection brings them into relation to each other creating a dynamic code system that can be performed/ read. When we go see work in a museum or gallery what are we hoping to receive? What do we give the works by visiting them? By using the art works present in the museum as a performative divining system we can imagine that these works concern you directly and are dying to speak with you to you.
