This event has ended.

The Gabarron Foundation presents “Miriam Wosk - Bigas Luna: Collar de Moscas”, a two-person exhibition featuring large-scale paintings and collages by Wosk, and an installation that includes a short, experimental film by Luna. Bigas Luna, the esteemed Catalan director, is perhaps best known for his sexy, provocative films exploring Spanish machismo, including the infamous Trilogía Ibérica with Jamón Jamón (1992), Huevos de Oro (1993) and La Teta Y La Luna (1994). Luna’s installation consists of a long wood table that has two, inverted, large, glass jars at either end. The jars contain apples– one fresh and the other decomposing. In between the jars, Luna has placed eroding rocks and two hand saws that have been imbedded into the table. Behind the table is a monitor on a wall made of simple wood boards. The monitor will show Collar de Moscas, 2001. In the seven large-scale paintings, collages and tapestry gathered here, Wosk conjures a world both animate and dream-like, combining reconfigured diagrams of anatomical bodies (mammal, reptile, fish, etc.) with lush jungles of pattern and color.
