Lottie Consalvo: In the Remembering

Lottie Consalvo works across a range of media including painting, sculpture and performance, and in this exhibition combines these disciplines into two major new works. The paintings in ‘In the Remembering’ bear the gestural traces of a performance in which the artist positioned herself psychologically within a particular memory and sought to record the body in this moment of psychological transition. By documenting what Consalvo calls ‘the imagining of a time that has passed’, these works invite meditation on the structure of memory – its conflation of present and past, absence and presence, and it’s shifting, and ultimately ungraspable nature. The ephemeral quality of performance is counterpointed in the exhibition by the permanence and tangibility of painted and sculptural forms.
