A new solo exhibition by Ilona Sagar opens this week, titled Mute Rehearsal and running at Vitrine Bermondsey Square from September 23 to October 31, with a private view and performance on September 22.
The London-based artist opens the show with a new experimental installation comprised of sound, text, photography and performance culled from her examination of online communities like fitness blogging set up to ‘help’ women become more empowered and act ‘acceptable’.
Exploring the relationship between bodies, surfaces and the processes of displacement through their manifestation in design and speech, Sagar zeroes in our cultural obsession with women’s bodies —how they move and how they speak.
