Olga Cerkasova and Isabella Fürnkäs work interdisciplinary and with a variety of media such as performance, installation, drawing and video. Both artists thematically question the body and it’s cultural identity and fluid interconnectivity through their work. Olga Cerkasova creates paintings, sculptures and fantastical reliefs that reveal hidden and delicate desires in site-specific installations in the space. Isabella Fürnkäs plays with the intersections of the multiplicity of identities and reflects subversive notions of self-perception.
Together they initiated a specific dialogue between their works while collaborating for the first time. The studio exhibition contains sculptural details made of plaster, sand and remastered ready mades that contextually engage with the oil paintings. The paintings blur the boundaries between painting and sculpture. The hanging cut-outs made of jute mark a fluidity and fragility which can also be observed in the small sized drawings. The artists worked site specifically and also included materials found through in their cultural research while being in Mexico City.
