Elizabeth Xi Bauer presents Phantom Dance which runs from 21st April – 3rd June 2023, open Wednesday through to Saturday, 12 – 6 pm or by appointment. A Private View was held on 20th April 2023, 6-8 pm in the presence of artists.
Phantom Dance is an exhibition of new works by Theodore Ereira-Guyer and Thiago Barbalho. Though the artists are friends and nourish an intellectual exchange for many years, it is the first time that their works are being exhibited together.
For this exhibition, the two artists’ works dialogue through varying mediums. Multiple double-sided stacks of large format etchings by Ereira-Guyer are installed so that they hang from the gallery ceiling to form a false wall which intersects the space. Created using different hues and densities of green, these etchings have been sewn onto silk and stitched together to create objects with architectural qualities. Exhibited with this are two sizeable drawings by Barbalho along with a selection of smaller drawings by the artist which are hung on the walls around the larger works. In addition, Ereira-Guyer has created new sculptures which are shown as part of this exhibition. These comprise of portraits made of bronze as well as animal figures conceived by etching into plaster.
