BARTIS ABOUT THIS WORK
Loooooooooop and Give / Take is both made around the topic of self care and a process of healing. Both works deals with the obstacles of these, the need of change and the difficulties of looking inwards.
Looking inwards is voluntary. Looping thoughts lead to a glitch.
Once they started it’s difficult to catch them, they are all over the place. The body turns into a heavy shell, still but never silent. Filled with echos and a tiny mind.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
"I focus on female subjects as this is what I have access to: my body, my subjectivity— as product of our time, defined by a deeply traditional, patriarchal upbringing with very fixed norms and gender roles. Knowing this allows me to keep exploring what is learned or forced upon us and what is desired, wished for, fantasised about. I am exploring how my sexuality is changing, how I am ageing, what I am passionate about, how I love and how I fight. Through painting I am also looking for alliance, others who are also on an explorative journey, sharing the interest of not only dismantling that male gaze etc. but to contribute to something that is not built on domination, exploitation and domestication. It is not for validating my subjectivity, claiming space with broad arm movements through wild brushstrokes, but sharing a methodology of challenging classical narratives, the constructed hierarchy and unlearning certain traditions."
The artist lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark.
