The exhibition explains the critical and at the same time sensitive dimension of Bahri’s work, turning to the contemporary world and inviting the viewer to sensitivity and attention. For curator Marta Gili, “her work incorporates many cultural and aesthetic references, developing visual experiences that are sensitive and accurate. The results of these experiments take various forms – drawings, videos, photographs, installations and hybrids of these forms. The basic materials used in these works are manipulated and ultimately transformed, often through mechanically inspired gestures and procedures that are related, in one way or another, to cinema or photography.”
The exhibition brings together nine recent works, all video installations, such as “Linha” (2011), “Reverso” (2016) and “Esboço” (2017), among others. “Collect” (2018), the most recent, was not part of the exhibition in France and can be seen for the first time in São Paulo.
