Curatorial Statement

Titled “Folds in Space”, Laliberté’s new work builds art and architecture historical references into a multi-planar meditation on our immediate contemporary built environment. Echoing Malevich’s Suprematist non-objectivist art probes, Le Corbusier’s modernist anti-decorative high-rise community architecture, and Soviet architectural Brutalism, “Folds in Space” invites us to re-envision community existence in a seemingly inevitable megastructural Borg. We would like to thank the artist for her generosity in loaning us her work.
