Wanderlust

Wanderlust, a solo exhibition by Caroline Monnet, features the series Modern Tipi and June, as well as the film Gephyrophobia. Exploring complex issues around identity, culture and territory, Monnet envisions various topographies and iconographies through painting and video, which, for this exhibition, all overlap to produce a large network of colours and lines.

Much like an ancestral tree or a topographical survey, the installation makes manifest our interconnectedness with people and the planet, despite the boundaries and bloodlines that too often keep us apart.

Wanderlust – a strong desire to travel, and Gephyrophobia – a fear of bridges, antagonize each other in Monnet’s own quest for emancipation. The resulting installation draws from various political and social histories, showing us how delineations, real or imagined, shape our cultures and communities.
