Axelle Rioult, Les Passages, digital print on duratrans, 80x100cm, 2005.

In the site-specific installation Non sans émoi (As I Lay Myself…), French artist Axelle Rioult draws on her personal experience to explore the nature of self-identity, utilizing a variety of media to create a "psychological self-portrait." Curated by Xavier Courouble, this exhibition traces Rioult’s examination of the aging process and its relation to the multiple roles she plays in her life as artist, mother and lover. Featuring photography, video, textile artwork and other sculptural pieces, the exhibition will evolve throughout the course of its presentation, with new elements being added every two weeks to further engage the conceptual interaction between its multiple facets. Non sans émoi (As I Lay Myself…) is on view in the Gallery at Flashpoint July 7 – August 19, 2006.

Opening Reception: Thursday, July 6, 6-8 pm
