Berni Searle @ Richard Saltoun Gallery
1 June 2021 - 19 June 2021
A quote from the artist “What interests me more, are ideas of ambiguity and mutability in relation to the concept of identity, and the various subject positions we occupy, which are always fluid.”
Berni Searle draws on a series of her works for this exhibition: Interlaced, which shows continuing engagement with the effects of colonisation, dispossession and displacement; Lament, in which the artist subverts the iconography of Christian lamentation, and instead laments the atrocities committed against the Congolese; Mantle I, where you can see the incorporation of the artist’s own body, and in Mantle II, Searle is covered in a golden cape.
