OMG! It's Sooo Cute - Exhibition Opening with the artists Corinne Kitzis & Alona Harpaz on 23 March 19:00.

About

In OMG! It’s sooo cute, Harpaz displays some of her recent works. Through these works, Harpaz blurs the boundaries between the personal and the impersonal, the public and the private and the intimate and the alien. Using industrial material as well as acrylic on canvas, Harpaz paints with bold lines and illuminating colors, women, and animal figures juxtaposed against organic images and other abstract paintings.

Kitzis, in her installation and video “The Art of a Housewife” grapples with similar questions. Appropriating the 90’s talk-show format, Kitzis creates a whole imaginary world. With humor and honesty, Kitzis offers the viewer a glimpse of the daily world of many families. In her talk show, Kitzis plays both the guest and the host characters— in this case, the unsatisfied housewife and a generic self-care guro. Inspired by Lacanian psychoanalyst Esther Perel, Kitzis sells in her talk show a product to every couple suffering from an unhappy marriage life: The “Roleplay 2000”.

The works of Harpaz and Kitzis are a response to a new age. In this new neoliberal age, the private and public spheres amalgamated to a whole new being. In their work, Harpaz and Kitzis explore the state of femininity in a time where the words ‘private’ and‘ public’ carry new, fluid meaning. A world in which everything is personal and impersonal simultaneity. "
