Encounter On The Bridge is an exhibition looking at the way two artists bridge the gap between the outer form and autobiographical elements in their work, in the context of International Women Day celebrations.
“How shall I most freely cross a bridge between inside and outside” ~ Paul Klee
The art show Encuentro en el Puente / Encounter on the Bridge will take place in Casa del Puente, Mar del Plata, Argentina, from march 1st, 2015 with the works of the artists Jill Rock (England) and Lili Vitali(Argentina). This name also relates to the meeting of the two women artists, and other women also, in the finding of objects that compose an exhibition that invites to integrate a creative interpretation of the assisting public.
Jill Rock, presented the art show IMAGINE in 4ta Edición de la Bienal Internacional del Fin del Mundo, Villa Mitre, Mar del Plata, a collection of objets found in Mar del Plata shore and inspired in honour to Alfonsina Storni´s poetry. This work is the basis for the Casa del Puente exhibition. She proposes to visualize her production as a part of a journey to be able to experience a way of discovery.
Lili Vitali makes glass sculptures which catch and reflect the light in unexpected ways. Born in Mar del Plata,with a national and international trajectory, her contemporary way of looking a very frágile material such as glass surprises because of the creativity of the expressivity of the universes found. The pieces exposed belong to the series EVERYTHING IS INHABITED (TODO ESTA HABITADO) in wich she makes a call to a sensible and diverse natural world.
Jill Rock works with objects she finds, exploring her relationship’s within the objective world. The idea would be to present Lili’s glass pieces looking outwards from the windows of Casa Del Puente whilst Jill’s pieces are within the house as objects to be found, so that the idea of looking outward and looking inward is created within the building.
A live conference via video link will be held between women artists in Mar del Plata through Universidad Nacional de Mar del Plata and in London through Hundred Years Gallery celebrating International Women’s Day MAKING IT HAPPEN, . The artists will share autobiographical aspects of their work, how they bridge the inner and outer impulses and the outcomes of the fusion. After the conference, an interchange of experiencies will be open to other activities – women as professionals,
