I Am Your Labyrinth

Richly layered, LeClercq’s exhibition continues to recalibrate her convictions about the crucial roles of specificity, context and perception.
Comprised of differently sized tablets, pieces depicting the iconic Sleeping Ariadne from various angles are dispersed in both the real and a replica scale-model of the gallery space in a seemingly explosive outburst, as if erupting from the diverging perspectival gaze of the viewers. She presents us with an instantaneous bird’s eye and linear views wherein the shifting centrality and relations between the observer, the work, and the varying spatial outlines of their exchange is brought to the fore.
