This event has ended.

With a contemporary sensibility, Schneider deploys lessons of modernism, reconfiguring them into his own visions of nervous domesticity and interrupted leisure. Drawing on found images, his memories and relationships, personal photographs, and imagined decor, he constructs environments that formally invite the viewer in. He then reverses the assumed roles of interior and exterior space for his audience by seating them in an awkward, broken chair, and then kindly directing their gaze out the window. The figures that drape these constructed spaces exude a sinister innocence, appearing caught by surprise, their self absorption evident. The viewer is the voyeur, and is left with a sense that these characters’ actions will continue long after they cease to be scrutinized.
