Motivated by the freedom stifling dictate of censorship, and following up Banned Book Week, Satch presents, REDACT: the words you wanted. Inspired by the banned book by D. H. Lawrence, Lady Chatterly’s Lover, Satch has created an installation that examines and portrays the power of the written word within the context of free speech and the powers that impel the desire to deny that fundamental right. Lawrence’s, Lady Chatterly’s Lover, was first published in 1928 and was banned in the united States in its unexpurgated version until 1960. Satch’s REDACT: the words you wanted, turns back the clock on the reality of our past social landscape and then brings the possibility of banning books, censoring news coverage and restricting freedom of speech into the very times that we are living in, every day.
REDACT: the words you wanted is being exhibited in the Stokol Gallery adjacent to SATCH ART SPACE in the Circle City Industrial Complex.
The exhibition opens on “First Friday,” October 5, 2018 from 6 to 10 p.m. It continues through October 30 during regular business hours at the Circle City Industrial Complex.
