Produced on the occasion ofContinuous Moment: Big Foot’s Studio, VCA Margaret Lawrence Gallery, October 6 – November 5, 2016.

Continuous Moment: Big Foot’s Studio is part of Bertoli’s ongoing research and investigation into Picasso’s play Le Désir Attrapé par la Queue (Desire Captured by the Tail). Referring to both a 1944 reading of the play and a staging of the play in 1967 by Jean Jacques Lebel, Bertoli’s work addresses ideas of repetition, reprise and continuity. Like Picasso’s text and Lebel’s production, Bertoli draws on a vast network of references and influences. In this light, Continuous Moment: Big Foot’s Studio can be understood as an assemblage of existing voices through which Bertoli is part of the aggregating authorship around ‘Le Désir’.

Temptation To Co-Exist Janet Burchill and Jennifer McCamley

Published by Heide Museum of Mocern Art, Melbourne, 2019, 104 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 21 × 26 cm, English

Price: €12

Working together since the early 1980s, Janet Burchill and Jennifer McCamley have developed an expansive framework of formal and thematic concerns drawing broadly on the histories of art and design, film, literature and cultural theory. Influenced by feminism, and applying an appreciation and critique of modernism, they make visually stunning artworks across an ever-expanding repertoire of mediums—from painting and sculpture, photography and printmaking, to neon light and textile works.
