Renate Bertlmann @ Richard Saltoun

6 October 2020 - 16 October 2020

Renate Bertlmann’s Magic Carpet paintings and sculptures are, in the artist’s words, a “courageous feminist act.”  Embodying a sense of feminine erotica and magical optimism, the works explicitly manifest Bertlmann’s exploration of ‘kitsch’ in the provocative trilogy that defines her practice: ‘Pornography’, ‘Utopia’ and ‘Irony’.

The gallery’s presentation for Frieze Masters features some works from the series that continue Bertlmann’s distinctive use of sexualised objects and now incorporate tinsel, baubles and glitter with bright neon paint. Fun and light-hearted works on paper are shown alongside small-scale mixed media sculptures that combine papier mâché, Polaroid photographs, Perspex and postcards.
