Josefine Reisch @ Zabludowicz Collection
20 September 2018 - 28 October 2018
Josefine Reisch’s works seduce the viewer with haunted textures of the already seen. Working through traditional mediums such as tromp l’oeil painting, portraiture and textile, she creates moments of recognition. Reisch questions the value and validity of European cultural heritage as she reassembles historical moments and figures into jumbled compositions, much like a musical medley. Engaging in a feminist reading of historiography her work triggers new readings and uncertainty within this déjà-vu. For her solo exhibition titled Celetoids, Reisch reflects on how the depiction of female subjects create value, specifically linking two moments from across the centuries, Renaissance portraiture and contemporary selfie culture.
