a matter of time

17- 22 November, 2023, Culterim | Backshop

Opening: 17 November, 2023, 6pm

How do you look at a person who looks at you, not simply representing her?

The story of two artists. The idea of one developed in the other’s painting, and these images influenced her sculptures in turn. The artist-couple Roberta Cotterli and Claudio Zorzi jointly present their work. Roberta Cotterli’s sculptures examine male representation in art history; Claudio Zorzi’s portraits develop the idea of a modern Icon. Both investigate time in relationship with process, art history, and moments spent with the other.

Despite their different media, the two artists share specific concerns and references. Visual and material exploration combines with art historical references and art sociological considerations. The exhibition centres around the question of muse and model, suggesting a play between intimate representation vs. presented intimacy. The works tell stories of the sitter and the artist, and the two of them together; they shift between artistic investigation and expressions of care. Classical motifs are taken up and continued; roles are turned around. Old Masters and Christian iconography intersect with the Contemporary. A matter of time.
