Rosa Aiello: The Coquette, The Prude
Southern Alberta Art Gallery, Lethbridge, AB - Dec 8, 2018 – Feb 17, 2019
Based on two short stories by Patricia Highsmith, this solo show includes a video, a series of photographic works and a sound installation. Interdisciplinary artist and writer Rosa Aiello employs a narrative structure to examine female stereotypes and gendered power dynamics. At the same time, through formal devices of interruption and repetition, she questions the audience’s role – whether indi erent or voyeuristic – in the commitment of what is surely a crime.
