Indecent Exposure features a series of new work by resident artist Théo Bignon. Somewhere in-between the reconstitution of an ornate living room, a series of intricate and perverse embroideries and a capsule collection of mesh tank tops, this exhibition considers the house as a site of forbidden desire, untameable sexuality and voyeuristic play.
Théo Bignon is a French artist whose work investigates notions of desire and identity through embroideries, sculptures, installations and collages. After getting a BA in Political Science and Cultural History from Sciences Po Paris, he moved to the US first in Pittsburgh, PA through the University of Pittsburgh Studio Art Department, then in Richmond, VA. Théo currently lives in Chicago, IL, where he is pursuing an MFA in the Fiber & Material Studies Department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. His work has been exhibited nationally at the Hive Gallery in Los Angeles, CA, Site Brooklyn, NY, ARC Gallery in Chicago, IL, The Studio Door in San Diego, CA, as well as other galleries across the US
