It all takes place on a bed. That's right, a bed. The artist Lucile Choquet is using this set as a kind of prop with which to question her 'racialized guests' about how their bodies are perceived in public space, and the place non-white people have in society. Choquet's work raises questions about the legacy of colonialism and, at the same time, aims to highlight "contemporary heroines and heroes."
