This event has ended.

In her new body of work, Batibeki depicts women in various states of undress or completely covered by the veil. The exhibition title refers to the popular magazines and books published in the first half of the 20th century on cheap "pulp" paper with lurid cover art that offered escapist and sensationalist fiction for a mass audience. Intensely mysterious, some of Batibeki’s women seem to be floating through space, while others are in grounded positions holding knives or guns. The canvases evoke wonder on the part of the viewer: Is it a mere catfight or is something much more dangerous about to happen?
