JILL BAROFF & STEFANA MCCLURE : WHAT’S YOURS IS MINE (#WYIM)
Sep 16 - Nov 18, 2017
The artists and the gallery have collaborated for over a decade and this exhibition celebrates both this continuous relationship and the artists’ recent marriage. Indeed, the show’s title references both an auspicious moment and the notion of joint authorship. This joint authorship extends into the artists’ practice, collaborating on a suite of new paintings entitled Square Peg Round Hole. An act of resistance and conformity, the artists pounded square wooden pegs into round holes too small to accommodate them. This direct act made with simple, humble, materials, is transformed into subtle works of exquisite beauty that belie the blunt force that created them.

Private view Thu Feb 22 6pm - 8pm
Bartha Contemporary is pleased to announce REFLEX II: The Brain Closer Than The Eye with works by Jill Baroff, Susan Morris and Beat Zoderer. The group exhibition will showcase works made as a result of self-prescribed processes that rely on elements of chance and rigorous repetition.
 
The title, originally derived from an exhibition by Gary Hill (1994 Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Basel), inspired an exhibition at Bartha Contemporary in 2004 with works by Herbert Hamak, Winston Roeth and Rémy Zaugg. The 2004 show raised questions about how a painting is perceived. This exhibition, which focuses on drawing, will consider the notion of reflex as automaticity through repetitive movement.
