Preview: 14th January 2017, 12 – 8 pm

The Approach is pleased to announce its second solo exhibition of new paintings by the French, Berlin-based artist Sophie Bueno-Boutellier in January 2017. Le Don de Gaïa is the second part of a trilogy of exhibitions reassessing the feminine.

Bueno-Boutellier’s signature gesture of cutting, folding and wrapping raw, unstretched canvas reveals her engagement with the painting simultaneously as a pictorial surface and a textile material. The very acts of folding and wrapping can be read as feminine gestures relating to care and reproductive labour, which feature as central concerns in the artist’s intuitive and empirical working process.

The new body of work presented in this exhibition features interventions by Bueno-Boutellier’s husband Niels Trannois, an artist himself. As an experiment of opening up her practice, Bueno-Boutellier has asked him to paint within the sculpted surfaces she had made. She initiated this exchange in order to reflect on her own maternal experience through her artistic practice: the woman’s loss of identity and loss of the integrity of the female body through maternity, as well as the potential for this experience of loss to be transformed into knowledge.

Sophie Bueno-Boutellier (b. 1974, Toulouse, France) lives and works in Berlin, Germany. Selected solo exhibitions include: La Ritournelle du Peuple des Cuisines, Fondation d’entreprise Ricard, Paris, France (2016); Life seems unreal, can we go back to your place?, Freymond-Guth, Zurich, Switzerland (2015); They sing a song only you can hear, The Approach, London, UK (2014); C’est à crier tellement c’est bleu, Circus, Berlin, Germany (2012); Pensée Sauvage, Kunstverein Langenhagen, Langenhagen, Germany (2011); A knock on the window pane, Galerie Carlos Cardenas, Paris, France (2009); Lunar Odyssey, Beton-Salon, MuseumsQuartier, Vienna, Austria (2007).
