Gaia Fugazza @ Zabludowicz Collection

24 March 2016 - 1 May 2016

Gaia Fugazza’s work is primarily interested in the routines and choices that shape daily life. Figurative images relating to intimate yet common scenes are set in intriguing and highly textured pictorial spaces. Bodies touch and gesture in delicate layers of pigment on glass, and in lines scratched into wood and filled with wax. An aesthetic and narrative emerges that is set in a deliberately ambiguous time and place.
For her Invites exhibition Fugazza presents new and recent work informed by her experiences of motherhood, travel and the process of making objects. This personal body of work is also an open-ended reflection on how circumstances determine our actions. In a work on plywood titled Lots of Choice (2015) a black frame and small swiping hands recall the way Fugazza’s young son resisted ‘full screen’ options when watching Peppa Pig online. Instead he preferred to keep open the possibility of clicking on other options. Fugazza folds this observation into her wider concern with the idea of contemporary distraction.
