Bianca Baldi’s solo exhibition Versipellis marks the beginning of the Perruche-series, initiated by Goethe Institut Brussels.
The exhibition is part of Baldi’s long-term research project “Zero Latitude” (2012-present) that started in Brussels while the artist was reading the personal diaries of Colonial explorer Henry Morton Stanley at Africa Museum Tervuren. Her works take symptomatic events from the repertoire of Western European imperial history as a starting point to question their economic, political, geographical or mythological entanglements. In Versipellis she restages historical documents, setting the objects and images in scene as indices which reveals the seductive potential of the shifty image to transgress boundaries.
Coordination and Concept: Jana J. Haeckel
On Saturday, January 27, 7pm, there will be a talk with the cultural scientist Lotte Arndt, the artist Sammy Baloji (documenta 14, WIELS etc.) and Bianca Baldi.
