Description

This exhibition, presented as part of Toward Common Cause, features an installation of Monalisa by American artist Ida Applebroog. Living in Southern California in 1969, Applebroog sought refuge from her life as a single mother in her bathtub, where she spent between two and three hours an evening drawing pictures of her body. This ritual eventually resulted in 160 portraits of Applebroog’s vagina. Packed away in 1974 and rediscovered in 2009, the drawings are installed as wallpaper on a wooden structure resembling a house. Curated by Dieter Roelstraete. Gallery open by appointment.
