Innocence and Experience: Carolina Raquel Antich, Corinne Day, Sarah Dobai, Jenny Watson
Innocence and ExperienceGimpel Fils is pleased to present an exhibition exploring the tensions and transitions that occur as we move from child to adulthood. This exhibition brings together two painters and two photographers who depict the worlds of young girls and women in order to provoke different emotions and anxieties. Significantly, each artists has a different approach to their artistic practice: Antich uses the world of childhood imagination; Day's imagery document's the lives of her friends; Dobai's delicately composed photographs are reminiscent of films where significant acts happen just out of shot; while Jenny Watson uses her own life and interests as a source for inspiration. What links these artists are the ways in which their art create spaces for examining inter-personal relationships and tensions. These spaces are often uneasy and the works in this exhibition show uncanny moments: lives that are fraying at the edges.
