Catherine Biocca, Cornelia Baltes &c @ Mission Gallery, Mar 19 – Apr 9

, 17 March 2016

Catherine Biocca, Cornelia Baltes and Rosalie Schweiker are presenting a joint exhibition at Swansea’s Mission Gallery, opening March 19 and running to April 9.

Curated by Louise Hobson as part of the Jane Phillips Award Curatorial Residency, the show features work from the three invited artists’ distinct practices as part of a process that the press release describes in a long list of verbs: “inviting, researching, funding, mentoring, collecting, questioning, doubting, choosing, emailing, chatting, travelling, visiting, explaining, persuading, budgeting, collaborating, facilitating, printing, distributing, communicating, redrafting, coordinating, responding, compromising, adapting, transporting, curating.”

The works on display includes a new installation and “deconstructed dinosaur landscape” by Biocca called Deutscher Fürst (German for ‘German Prince’) alongside some 4-handed space drawings from her INTERGALACTIC series. Baltes will present wall-paintings of subtly shifting protagonists of an abridged visual narrative and Schweiker will show the migrant worker’s fridge magnet collection along with local drinks as part of her interest in the social functions of art.
