Everyone Wants a South Facing Window

Lauren Iacoponi
MFA Thesis Exhibition

May 1-5, 2018

Lauren Iacoponi co-founded Unpacked Mobile Gallery with colleague Shane Bowers this past year due to a growing interest in different models of mobile museums and galleries for contemporary art. Those who founded Unpacked wanted to mobilize in a literal way – bringing their vision out into the world and into different communities. Unpacked expands the domain of what is conventionally considered an appropriate space to showcase art - the bed of a moving truck. Unpacked's installation sites vary from the typical museum/gallery context, by traveling to public and institutionalized locations on university campuses, art districts, museums, and public parks. Each install presents its own concepts on diverse subject matter. Iacoponi's installation art featured in Everyone Wants a South Facing Window creates a complex indoor environment that engages viewers in an actor-participant role.



Everyone Wants a South Facing Window focuses on themes of repetition and fixation. Iacoponi's thesis work applies serial composition, reference to the body, and a blurring of the boundary between painting and sculpture, utilizing artwork to shape the viewer's spatial environment. The installation of wax stacks within the truck bed of Unpacked creates engagement with the physical-phenomenological dimensions of space, body and self.
