SEAT ASSIGNMENT
NINA KATCHADOURIAN

August 25 - October 09, 2016


Featured in this exhibition was internationally acclaimed artist Nina Katchadourian’s improvisational and humorous series "Lavatory Self-Portraits in the Flemish Style” from her project entitled "Seat Assignment." This ongoing project was created with only a hand-held camera phone, in airplane bathrooms while in flight.

Her self-portraits, reminiscent of traditional 15th-century Flemish portraiture, are composed solely from the clothing she is wearing at the time and the supplies available such as seat covers, toilet tissue, and hand towels.  Her hilarious video, “In a Room Full of Strangers” from the same series was also featured along with her photographic images.
