Of Bodies and Borders: Ana Teresa Fernandez

The Grunwald Gallery at Indiana University is pleased to present Of Bodies and Borders, an exhibition of paintings, drawings and video by artist Ana Teresa Fernández (b. 1981, Tampico, Mexico). The exhibit, organized by Gallery Wendi Norris and previously shown in Miami, will open on January 11 and continue through March 2, 2019.

Since 2014, close to 120,000 migrants and refugees have crossed the Central Mediterranean departing from Libya, Tunisia or Egypt on the route known as the “deadliest border in the world”. To date, according to the New York Times, 13,000 migrants have been recorded as killed or missing on this border. Once saturating the North American news, this crisis has been distilled to the periphery of our awareness. Ana Teresa Fernández aims to refocus attention on the plight of the thousands of migrants through this body of work.

This five-year project was filmed in various locations off the island of Poros, Greece. All of the works in the exhibition stem from Fernández’s performance in the depths of the ocean. In the video, “Drawn Below”, she dons her signature little black dress and heels, weighted down with 13-pound weights. While submerged, she wrestles with a bed sheet for hours, exemplifying an enduring physical and psychological performance.

Balancing Act: Christyl Boger

12:00 pm to 04:00 pm on Mar 2

The Grunwald Gallery at Indiana University Bloomington is pleased to present the exhibition Balancing Act: Christyl Boger. The exhibit contains works from Boger’s career as a renowned ceramic artist and professor at the School of Art, Architecture, and Design at Indiana University, Bloomington. The exhibit will open to the public on Friday, January 11, but the reception will take place on Friday, January 18th from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.

Boger’s work is interested in the balancing act of the human animal caught between impulse and control, individual versus group, and the “fragile, vulnerable veneer” of our shared cultural behavior. Her work exists at the confluence of high and low art, of traditional figurative sculpture and domestic decorative figurines. Her works are caught between irreverent display and self-conscious concealment, shifting between vulnerable and suggestive states of being.

Through combining the idealized aesthetic of classical sculpture with the scale of table top decorative figurines, her work has been described as embodying a fine balance between high and low art. Though she references non-ceramic elements such as public statuary and contemporary inflatable beach toys, Boger stated that her material “stays true to the language of ceramic figurines…the material of clay itself is inseparable from the ideas of fragility and artifice.”
