– Virginia Walcott
New Orleans Exhibition
In her first solo show, Virginia Walcott looks at the impact of architecture and design on our sense of self and belonging. Using a multi-channel video installation, she explores how family, memory, gender, and the built environment intertwine to create an ever-changing artifact of our physical and emotional surroundings. Honoring the many ways our inner world shapes the spaces we call home (and vice versa), Almost Home blends video, sound, and writing to construct a temporary threshold for stepping into this domestic convergence.
Virginia Walcott (she/her) is an interdisciplinary artist, designer, and filmmaker from the Gulf Coast of Alabama. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 2016 and has spent the last six years working for publications like The Atlantic and Scalawag Magazine. She lives in New Orleans where she teaches at various art centers and runs a creative studio called Superhumid, working with clients primarily in journalism and music. She works in video and 2D/3D mixed media and is interested in our natural, built, and digital environments, ideas of home, and the U.S. South. Her background in journalism and her rural upbringing inspire and challenge her practice, pushing her to listen to the intricate and everyday.
