The Centre d’Art Contemporain is located in rural Parc Saint-Léger, France. Its director for the past seven years, Sandra Patron, is curating one final show before taking over the direction of the Musée Régional d’Art Contemporain in Sérignac.
The installation, based on Leigh Ledare’s work Double Bind, reflects the ties between intimacy and social conventions. Arriving through the corridor to find 480 posters lining the walls, the visitor is thrown into the photographer’s complex world. (Minors are prohibited due to the exhibition’s explicit sexual content.) The posters are like collages from the glossy pages of a magazine, with the woman offering her body to the desirous male gaze.
