Located in San Francisco, Savernack Street features site-specific works and provides a voyeuristic lens for the visitor.

Savernack Street is an art gallery in the Mission district of San Francisco, created and curated by Carrie Sinclair Katz. The gallery exhibits site-specific works, which are experienced by patrons by looking in through a peephole in the door.

The peephole, an analog live security camera originally invented to create a wider view for assessing the safety of strangers, here, when activated, renders the gallery itself as insecure.

Accessible 24 hours a day, it provides a voyeuristic lens to the visitor and embodies a physical representation of the outside looking in. The gallery is also rigidly boundaried as it rejects entrance and forces a limited perspective on the patrons.
