Marie Jacotey — Morning Defeats — London, UK — 14 SEP - 14 OCT 2017
Hannah Barry Gallery, 4 Holly Grove, Peckham
Hannah Barry Gallery is excited to present to the public Morning Defeats an exhibition of new work by Marie Jacotey. The installation comprises some 30 drawings in dry pastel on Japanese paper, together with a large-scale work on fabric, measuring 3.5 x 10m with drawings directly made on the surface with textile pens, crayons and dyes. In all these new drawings you will find extreme violence, rawness, brutality in combination with intimacy, sensuality, tenderness. These are the kinds of environments one have come to associate with Marie Jacotey’s work. It seems that for Marie the drawing offers up space for the setting of a tension, with its anchors either in relationships — be these specific or symbolic — or in the opposite experiences of loneliness and solitude.
