(...) To watch Coaching Sessions is to be placed inside a room. Each of the four videos is mounted on the walls of a square gallery, and each becomes a window. What we see through them is not, however, the outside, but other rooms: a living room, a dining room, a bedroom, and a retirement home. The room formed by the installation paradoxically puts the viewer in the position of being on the outside looking in. Like an indoor garden, ours is an outside enfolded within an inside: a secret room where we observe, in darkness, the goings-on in the other parts of the house. We watch but do not have access to these other residents. That is what it means to be outside.
