Galeria Nara Roesler | New York is pleased to present The Woman Who Walks With Me, a group exhibition featuring work by Brígida Baltar, Cristina Canale and Karin Lambrecht.
The Woman Who Walks With Me looks at the poetics at the core of the three artists’ practices as they engage the body, the notion of female identity and its stereotypes, and memory of family and origin.
Baltar’s embroidery and glazed ceramic works reflect on the body as sensorial space, and a means of relating to oneself and the wider world. Canale’s paintings dialogue with the history of portraiture and representation. Lambrecht’s investigations of color and light approach the body as a repository of memory and a vehicle for transcendence.
The exhibition title is inspired by a famous verse by Brazilian poet Hilda Hilst (1930-2004), whose oeuvre is marked by aspects of poetic strength that resonate in the work of the three featured artists.
