Description

The Objects of Desire

Beatriz Gerenstein is participating in Personal Structures, an exhibition organized by the Global Art Affairs Foundation and held by European Cultural Centre during the 57th Venice Biennale. Her installation was called “The Objects of Desire.” The exhibition is on view at the Palazzo Mora, from May 13 to November 27, 2017.

The installation comprises seven bronze sculptures. They are primitive like cave-girl pursues. The sculptures were made with bronze, cast like tree twigs tied with plant fiber strings and deconstructed to their simplest and minimalistic expression. Conversely, Gerenstein embellished these rudimentary handbags with a 24K gold plated patina, semi-precious stones and exotic feathers denying their archaic appearance. This adornment introduces a ludic element that suggests the uniqueness and the luxury possible in a handbag. The handbags-sculptures are presented in a dark room and placed inside an acrylic box as seen in high-end stores selling the most expensive handbags like jewelry.
