Ligia Lewis: A Plot / A Scandal
• Days with event
A plot exposed, a foul deed enacted, invites scandal. In the spirit of revolution or romantic musings, scandals provoke an imagining of the impossible. Utopian or mundane, how might scandal reveal what lies unwittingly close to our fantasies? And how does it expose where society places its limits? If life is a scandal waiting to be plotted, how do we position ourselves within its matrix? Immoral and lacking propriety, scandals are incidents where fantasy and pleasure take centre stage. Guided by the questions for whom this pleasure is for and at what expense, Ligia Lewis’s new "plot" explores the stage where scandals abound. Weaving together historical, anecdotal, political, and mythical narratives, Lewis constructs the poetics of refusal at the edges of representation. A dance between affect and embodiment, seeing and being seen, "A Plot / A Scandal" is a scene in the making where the excitement for that which does not fit might find its place.
