Curtain Call, 2021/2022 (installatie)
Moving through the COME ALIVE exhibition you will find yourself passing between several pairs of sensual legs. The printed curtains of Alix Marie refer to the famous French dance the cancan. Most of us will associate that dance with the rows of scantily clad dancers at the Moulin Rouge, but before the dance was sexualized in this way, it was a liberating dance of, by, and for women. The curtains remind us that female sexuality has traditionally been exploited, but that it can also be reclaimed. The curtains symbolize a passageway to new possibilities.
