Radicants, the first international curatorial cooperative created by Nicolas Bourriaud, inaugurates its exhibition space, Radicants Paris, with a solo exhibition of the Israeli artist Bracha L. Ettinger (Tel Aviv, 1948).
Her work will be presented by the New York-based curator, Noam Segal.
Bracha Lichtenberg Ettinger is an artist, philosopher, and psychoanalyst, as well as a prominent feminist theorist and the creator of "matrixial theory". Despite important international exhibitions her work has not been exhibited in Paris since 1990. This exhibition intends to position Bracha L. Ettinger’s work where it belongs: at the forefront of contemporary painting.
Showcasing some twenty paintings and drawings as well as the artist's notebooks written in three languages (French, English, and Hebrew), Segal provides a reading of Bracha L. Ettinger's artistic practice based on her own theories of matrix space and her notion of giving birth. The exhibition presents the series Annunciation, Pietà, and Eurydice, which she started in the mid-1980s and are still in progress.
The exhibition runs until 29 July.
