For Closer Music, the artist Jagna Ciuchta imagines an exhibition as a stage device.

"House of Goats" brings together different mediums and materials - paintings, photographs, animal skins, black mirrors - and invites other artists, Chloé Dugit-Gros, Marta Huba, Laura Porter and Benjamin Swaim to create a dark and enveloping atmosphere, both rustic and synthetic. To be seen in the House of Goats spaces: Warm Up Sessions in high heels (Jean-Biche), an anthology of Raï music (Katia Kameli), an ode to Kate Bush (Bertrand Lamarche), the concerts of Lavascar and Maria Teriaeva and the DJ-set of Anadol.
"It comes down to inclusive exhibitions or to sympoietic forms; to us, as the "dilated I" - like the pupils of the eye in love, desire or an hallucinated state. It comes down to exhibition photography in the broadest sense, to appropriation, to painting, to liquid images, to artists and artworks, to the signature, to the address, to goats, to decor, to carnivorous plants." Extract from "Exhibitions : The Dilated Self, Liquid Images and Carnivorous Plants" Thesis Portfolio, Jagna Ciuchta, 2019.
