A multichannel video work and photography series by School of Art faculty Sharon Lockhart are included in the major exhibition, Remedios: Where New Land Might Grow, running now through March 2024 at the Centro Creación Contemporánea de Andalucía (C3A) in Córdoba, Spain.
Curated by Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary (TBA21) Artistic Director Daniela Zyman, Remedios marks the second annual collaboration between C3A, the city of Córdoba, and the Andalusian Regional Government aimed toward highlighting the region’s rich artistic traditions. More about the show from e-flux’s announcement:
Remedios: Where new land might grow is a multi-perspectival exploration of practices of healing, repair, reparation, remediation, and restitution in the TBA21 Collection. Featuring contributions from over forty artists—including Amazonian, Pacific, indigenous American, African-diasporic, and European perspectives—Remedios invites its public to engage with works of art for solace, respite, and replenishment while responding to the growing desire to change the contemporary world. Contributing tools, ideas, and artistic interrogations dedicated to the (re-)generative capacities of repair, the exhibition becomes a space of encounter providing a pedagogy of learning to live with brokenness and vulnerability in troubling times.
Lockhart’s work can be found in Space 04 of C3A. On display is her five-channel video installation, Five Dances and Nine Wall Carpets by Noa Eshkol (2011), an homage to dance composer and textile artist Noa Eshkol. She is best known for her collaborative work with architect Avraham Wachman: the Eshkol-Wachman Movement Notation (EWMN) system. The pair developed and refined EWMN, a “mathematically generated spherical system to capture the entire gamut of movements,” for more than two decades.
Also on view is Lockhart’s Models of Orbits in the System of Reference, EshkolWachman Movement Notation System (2011), a series of 22 photographs documenting the “spherical model of study” of the EWMN system. The work was also included in the 2021-22 show, Sharon Lockhart. Notation Rotation, at the Guggenheim Bilbao in Spain.
Lockhart is a Los Angeles-based artist known for “highly conceptual yet effortlessly elegant work[s]” that take shape in installation, photography, and film. Her art has been exhibited internationally in numerous solo and group shows. Lockhart is the 2019 recipient of the Grand Prix d’Honneur at the Marseille International Film Festival and represented Poland at the 57th Venice Biennale.
