Inner Urban Sanctum, by Lisa Kellner
Inner Urban Sanctum is an installation made of silk organza, pigment, mannequin body parts, wood, monofilament and latex paint. This piece examines the experiential qualities of private and public space. Lisa is interested in the emotional sensibilities that occur when flesh and bodily structure are juxtaposed with aspects of a personal sanctuary within the confines of an urban configuration. Inner Urban Sanctum intends to involve the viewer in peeling back the layers of a constructed persona to reveal what lies underneath.
