Agnes Scherer's project ORLANDO TUSSAUD presents a complete
reshaping of the gallery's interior.

About

With the use of temporary walls, the artist transforms the five room exhibition space into an immersive installation which complements her practice and resources. The transformed space takes on a narrative function as Scherer inscribes into it a sequence of impressions which culminate in a complex tableau within the office at the back of the gallery. There are a number of fully enclosed spaces throughout the exhibition that provide only limited access to the visitor's gaze. ORLANDO TUSSAUD, the show's motto, combines two characters which together stand for complete flexibility. Virginia Woolf's Orlando embodies the ability to tailor one's persona to changing times and circumstances. Marie Tussaud is emblematic of the pontential to actively shape the world one lives in with the means of representation, kneading what's unwanted into what's desired. The pictorial program conveys a precarious ambivalence wherein aspects of triumph and defeat in the bending of the self appear indistinguishable.
