Rigs & Table Games
Curator: Max Epstein
29 Aug — 24 October, 2015
Yemima’s installation is a sequent of her preoccupation with objects and urban scenery, and presents objects that comprise painting and found items.
The urban sphere invades off-shore drilling rigs, generating recurring Images of four-legged, huge, steel surfaces that allude to game tables. Ergas researches the image of the table and examines the language of painting, from realism to what nears abstract, with virtuosity.
The rigs resemble futuristic scenery, dystopic and aggressive – deserted islands, detached from one another and devoid of human presence.
In the exhibition “Rigs & Table Games”, the painting itself is an object, thus becoming one with the surroundings it portrays.
