Marlborough Contemporary is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by artist Narelle Jubelin, marking her second solo show with the gallery. Exploring the way objects – particularly those of cultural significance – travel through the world, Jubelin uses artistic movements as a vehicle through which to navigate such flows. In Flamenco Primitivo, Jubelin exhibits petit point renditions of formative regional Modernist works including Anni Albers, Hannah Höch, Ree Morton and Pablo Picasso. Marking the second time the artist has worked with the material, the exhibition also includes five bronze works cast from packaging buffers designed for secure travel over huge distances – hinting at the geographies of her practice. Finally, various found and assembled video works complete the exhibition, documenting ‘unrepeatable’ moments of the artist’s own experience. These pieces consider the way in which individuals digest and record histories of creative difference – personally and politically – whilst assessing how such experiences translate between cultures.
Born in Sydney in 1960, Jubelin has lived and worked in Madrid since 1996. Over the last twenty years she has exhibited in the Sharjah Biennial, United Arab Emirates (2009); Museo Reina Sofia, Madrid (1994); the Renaissance Society, Chicago (1994); the Hayward Gallery, London (1992) and the Venice Biennale (1990). Solo shows have been held at Gulbenkian Foundation, Lisbon (2014); Casa Encendida, Madrid (2012); the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney (2009) and Heide Museum of Modern Art, Melbourne (2009).
