Galeria Nara Roesler is delighted to share a solo presentation by Brazilian artist Brígida Baltar on Frieze London’s current edition. The selection aims to grasp the artist's multi-disciplinary practice, which includes performative actions, sculptures, works on paper, and embroideries, offering a delve into Baltar's cohesive investigation on matters of transience, intimacy, body and shelter. The presentation begins with works from the 1990s, when the artist undertook a series of small poetic gestures from her own home, followed by pieces that demonstrate how her investigations slowly expanded to the outdoor, distinctively engaging with nature’s ephemerality, finally arriving at Baltar's most recent experimentations with notions of chimerism and of the passing of time. Ultimately, the selection seeks to foreground the multi-faceted, yet highly congruous nature of the artist's practice through representative elements within her artistic journey.
