PLACES TO RECALL


Everyday life is a theatrical performance, according to the findings made in 1959 by the social theorist Erving Goffman. Life is a stage, and we know that we are being watched while we act out the different roles of the protagonists of our own invention. So, too, the figures in Kone's new drawings find themselves on the stage. They stand with trousers down and in front of silent prompter boxes, looking towards the faceless crowd that is their audience. (Oona Lochner)
