The Shape of Obus
Date:Sat, Feb 25th, 2023 to Sun, Jun 18th, 2023
The Shape of Obus highlights Shannon Bool’s recent research on the figure of Le Corbusier, a Swiss-French pioneer of modern architecture. Bool’s work focusses on a series of erotic drawings Le Corbusier made in Algeria during the 1930s and the interior spaces he designed for his apartment in Paris and for the Villa Savoye.
By examining the flip side of modernist currents, the artist reveals repressed aesthetic influences in both visual art and architecture.
Shannon Bool’s recent practice takes on many forms, including tapestries, silk paintings, collages, sculptures, and photograms. Her work gravitates around a central theme: a critique of Modernism through unconventional material processes, combined with her own interpretation of psychoanalytical concepts.
This project was made possible thanks to the financial support of the Canada Council for the Arts and the Fondation du Musée d’art de Joliette.
