Bodies of Love is an exhibtion at gr_und gallery, along side Kat Cutler Mackenzie and Ben Caro.

The body is and has been a highly coded and contested site of political debate. When intersected with contemporary notions of love – which range from the romantic to the patriotic, and intertwine with the associated issues of marriage, family, sexuality, gender, desire… – the site of the body is further complicated. In Bodies of Love the artists seek to develop a visual vocabulary with which to open up contemporary, intersectional conceptions of love that take into account the politicized nature of this phenomenon. The artists explore how, in the current Euro-American context, sociological changes have impacted the ways in which love is understood, and ask whether (and if so, how) artistic interventions can help to build a vocabulary around this shifting, ‘intangible’ act or emotion beyond its traditional stance. As bell hooks writes in all about love, “as a society we are embarrassed by love…without a supple vocabulary, we can’t even talk or think about it directly”. In this exhibition the artists pose an exploratory and fragmentary insight into contemporary notions of love through Muriel Lisk-McIntyre’s sound based installation Its tradition, we Love it! and Ben Caro and Kat Cutler-MacKenzie’s 35mm slide installation feeling looking.

Following a traditional methodology of love, Lisk-McIntyre explores personal relationships of love that are transmitted in the domestic setting. Its tradition, we Love it! is a dining room set, where a conversation on and about love is staged. It is the centerpiece and conversation piece between four women. The aim and questions brought to the table: to attempt to deconstruct and question the ways in which these women show and share love. While considering that the dining table – understood in this work as the center of the home – is an environment in which tradition, behaviors and education about love are passed on from generation to generation. The artist is asking why, on another level, are there still traditional methods of love that ‘we love’, maintain and reproduce to this day? Even though these methods are written in tradition from a patriarchal stance, Lisk McIntyre uses the premise of a matriarchal space to rethink these traditions. Through a series of objects chosen by the artist for their proximity to traditional objects of love, conversations will pour out onto the dining table.  and reconsiders the home as the primary school of Love (to be nuanced). As our mothers and grandmothers see new rights passed, then rescind back, Lisk-McIntyre seeks to explore whether love challenges notions of ‘social progress’ or disrupts notions of linear time.

I installed my work in an abandoned  paper factory. It is interesting to consider this space in relation to our current days. They had become the cathedrals of the industrial era, and now have no utility in rural France. This space, like other abandonned buildings, have become obsolete, and this is what I find interesting. 

The film explores my work in this factory. Between still shots, fixed shots, and moving/rotating images, it offers a view on a display I have been working on since January. There are found objects such as little statues, my father's old tennis towel, a maquette of a lion's foot, the vertically cut chairs, the vertical blinds, and edible croissant, whipped cream, and egg yolk and pork trotters. Characters enter the space and disappear in a mysterious way.

is an installation.
Two strangers, Scarlette and Roisin, wait in my space.
They walk around it, change it, but never see oneanother.

Tula came into my space. December 2020.

To introduce chaos into the sleek and still space, I had a live greyhound come into an installation of mine. It was interesting to consider how the animal interacted with the space, first intrigued, then bored until it sat down in the waiting room. There was no dead animal produce this time, as the focus was on the movement of the live animal.

As an installation artist and curator, I have come to understand that my practice is about creating space for art via the medium of the exhibition. The process of display, placing, laying down, hooking up is what I do. Finding the space that my fabrications will respond to and resonate with is key to my practice.

I have participated in curation of exhibitions, and am an active member in gr_und project space in Berlin.

The Waiting Room

The Waiting Room is a future space for installation art.  
Through it, I am carrying on the work I’ve been doing as an independant artists.

It is a fragment in contemporary practice, where display and exhibition are the mediums experimented with.

What is it saying?

Why is it relevant?


I am still in the research phase of its conception. By being part of different cultural spaces, such as project spaces and institutional art places, I am learning how to build the foundations of a physical space on the spot. On a theoretical level, I am actively engaged in the research of project spaces and institutional art places to understand the hisotry, ideologies and initial stories of where art happens, takes places and challenges the norm of its establishement.
