28 Jan PARADISE APARATUS a solo exhibition by JULIA ROSA CLARK
EXHIBITION CLOSES 27 MARCH 2010
Julia Rosa Clark (1975) lives and works in Cape Town. She has taught at various institutions for the past decade including recently University of Stellenbosch and Michaelis School of Fine Art (University of Cape Town). She obtained her MFA from the latter in 2004 and went on to have her first solo show, A Million Trillion Gazillion later that year at Joao Ferreira Gallery.
Overwhelming at times and intentionally experiential, Clark’s installations are made up of two- and three-dimensional elements that spill and spread throughout the gallery space. Made up of a universe of materials -from traditional to profane- the artworks reflect Clark’s continued process-driven experiments and her work with space, analogy, accumulation, repetition and co-operation. For this exhibition she has primarily used paper and found objects to create a curious interplay between various spaces.
