Art: Trust(ing), Latitude

October 26, 2012 @ 1:20 pm - 1:40 pm



Friday October 26, 2012

1:20 pm to 1:40 pm

at Latitude

948 Manchester Street

Lexington KY

Meaghan Carpenter’s “Trust” which will be performed during the opening of Lexington Art League’s “Approach,”  is a mobile nail salon housed inside an Army parachute, a place where Carpenter trades hand massages and manicures for 20 minutes of conversation.

From Latitude/EL and F:

“In this adaptation of Meaghan Carpenter’s “Trust” we take a look at the risk taken by those living in an institutional setting as they routinely trust their self care to others. What does it mean to transport an enclave of people considered disabled to a salon for a “beauty treatment”? Can we not take care of ourselves in this way at home? What does it mean when a local faith organization provides grooming and dress accessories to adults as they enter a sponsored dance? Are these positive enhancements or do they demean us as individuals? Are we validating poor institutional practices by encouraging these group fixes? In Trust(ing) Latitude artists turn the tables on these practices, giving to, as opposed to receiving a manicure from Ms Carpenter.”
