IPLAI is thrilled to announce Diana Cheng as the winner of our 2015-16 Art Installation Competition! Diana’s installation, Everyone Needs a Boudoir, will be on display from March 23rd until May 30th 2016. The installation marks an exciting step in our transformation of IPLAI’s space into a publicly-accessible, non-commercial gallery for showing thought-provoking art in all media.
Everyone Needs a Boudoir is an installation inspired by the boudoir, an eighteenth-century French invention, that was used as a refuge from social discontents and as a laboratory for identity construction.
Diana Cheng is a painter, designer and historian whose work focuses on the effect and codification of social norms in modern architecture, edible monuments, and human-computer interaction
