Zoi Zoi: Club House
@ Line Dot Editions
1023 N Western Ave, Chicago, IL 60622
Opening Saturday, September 12th, from 6PM - 9PM
On view through Saturday, September 26th
Line Dot invites you to leave your home and join us in a socially distanced opening reception celebrating the release of Club House, Zoi Zoi’s debut series of tufted wall works.
Materializing in the early days of Chicago’s stay-at-home order, Club House begins as an acknowledgment that nightlife as we once knew it, is no longer a possibility. Rather than pining for the past or a post-pandemic future, Zoi Zoi instead seek to explore what it might look like to have that purloined clubbing experience exist in your own living room, right now.
The tufted wall works that comprise Club House thread together objects of domesticity and nightlife: specifically rugs and rave flyers. Classic flyer phrases like “Resident DJs” and “Free All Night” are translated into wall hanging rugs that assume layers of deep irony in the context of the new homebody lifestyle. Though mandated by COVID-19, this collection represents adaptation. Unlike the fleeting existence of a paper flyer, clubbing at home is part of a new normal that is here to stay. Zoi Zoi believes there are ways to manifest a club experience while quarantined at home alone, and Club House safely and encouragingly takes you there.
