Juliana Cerqueira Leite : BLOOM

5 Oct 2017–7 Nov 2017


TJ Boulting is delighted to present BLOOM, the second solo show by Brazilian/American sculptor Juliana Cerqueira Leite with the gallery. The exhibition includes new sculpture, photo-collage and video, all of which explore the steady stream of recent online news that focuses on humanitarian crises. These works examine the - often exasperated - gesticulations of individual subjects interviewed by the news as representatives of a certain crisis: a refugee, a soldier, a doctor or aid worker. Gesticulations by politicians and reporters, as they attempt to explain complex issues to news viewers, are also explored in these works. Leite aims to create a permanent register of these bodily means of extending language and the ephemeral articulations that shape and are shaped by the geopolitical landscape.
