We are delighted to announce the opening of Alannah Louët's solo exhibition: “Emanations,” on Tuesday 4 February from 6-9pm.
The exhibition is the culmination of Alannah's three-month stay as part of the Artist-in-Residence program at SomoS, displaying the work she produced throughout this time. With “Emanations,” Louët initiates a multilayered discourse involving feminism, occultism and history, bridging the past and the present. Using topics such as Home Economics classes and Victorian Spiritualism as a starting point for creative reflections on gender roles, domesticity, female agency, physicality and its taboos, Louët invites the audience to follow her inventive narratives.
In her fist solo exhibition, the artist reimagines the spiritual medium as a forerunner, breaking the confines of accepted female expression and profession, creating a connection between science, spiritualism and performance. In addition, on opening night there will be a participatory installation: "Female Feast," depicting the aftermath of an elaborate feast, celebrating women indulging in their own hard work.
