window dressing


"When one undergoes the interrogation of shop windows, one also pronounces one’s own sentence. In fact, one’s choice is “round trip.” From the demand of shop windows, from the inevitable response to shop windows, the fixation of choice is determined. No obstinacy, ad absurdum, of hiding the coition through a glass pane with one or many objects of the shop windows. The penalty consists in cutting the pane and in gnawing at your thumbs as soon as possession is consummated."

Installation Documenation at the Sunview Luncheonette, Fall 2021

Window Dressing is a video and sound installation that was accessible at the front exterior window of the Sunview Luncheonette (Brooklyn, New York). The work invites visitors to be intimate with the inanimate surfaces at the periphery of the diner, as the window itself carries the sound of the images viewed through a small, low peephole. Drawing from the fantastic worlds of commodity display and fairy tales, the installation juxtaposes highly stylized imagery of phantasmagoric and seductive objects with their literal consumption. An extension of the ongoing interdisciplinary project Between Tin Men, Window Dressing plays with themes of fetishism, commodity display, voyeurism and desire. The installation activated the facade of the luncheonette after its long hiatus, while using the interior as a host body for dreamlike projections to entice and repel.
