Julie Libersat: Paved Paradise

In Paved Paradise, Julie Libersat explores symmetry and patterns within the landscape of late capitalism. Using the shopping mall and the parking lot as formal and conceptual frameworks, the interactive video installation explores a suburban vernacular that presents consumption as a modern form of worship. Paved Paradise is part of an ongoing series of parking lot mazes executed through various virtual and physical mediums. Libersat explores everyday landscapes and infrastructure to reflect on our cultural, social, and economic orientations. Paved Paradise presents the shopping mall as a temple of the golden age of capitalism and the parking lot as a labyrinth. Exhibition on view March 10- April 19, 2018.
