in the lounge Strange Streets Clarisse Van Kote* & Shelley Farmer
About This Show
Strange Streets is a multi-sensory portrait of the places we wander through – what they reveal about us, how they imprint themselves in our souls and our memories, and how they connect us to others before and after us. It tells the story of two women who meander through city streets and observe, regard, and map out the world they live in using all their senses, and the liberating possibility of women claiming their right to move through the world.
