Simone Fattal: Fix Your Gaze On Saturn’s Rings
Bergen Kunsthall, Bergen
14 May – 16 August 2020
The exhibition features a large number of works from the 1970s until today, presented in a characteristic non-chronologic installation in which a myriad of narrative threads and layers appear through the juxtapositions of works in different media and formal idioms and on different scales. Fattal is mostly known for her work in clay, and her ceramic figures are glazed in luminous colours or shades of sand and brown. The many long-legged figures, assorted vessels or architectural ruins relate to her interest in mythology and archaeology, as well as her efforts to chart deeply human themes such as the ravages of war and recovery.
