WORK > L'Invitée

L'Invitée is a project based around the famed visit to Nida, Lithuania in 1965 by Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, and addresses issues of complicity, intimacy and historicization. Concluding two months of research at the Nida Art Colony, Rodgers created an installation within his studio as well as produced a small publication. Composed of extracts from PDF articles found through online sourcing, Rodgers' digital montages takes the xerox document as a form that is simultaneously literal and abstract. The accompanying xerox publication is equally ambiguous, poetic and personal.
