Watchlist Artist: Elena Bajo

For her third solo show at D+T Project Gallery, Elena Bajo (1976) presents a new series of works created in Los Angeles, a research part of the project  La Femme Radicale  or The Point of No Return commissioned by Octavio Zaya for the art journal Atlantica. (Octavio Zaya is the curator of the Spanish Pavilion, Venice Biennale 2013).

The research on the history and image's ontology of anarchist women such as Emma Goldman (1869-1940) and their reinterpretations by various craftsmen brings altogether a unique body of work that pays tribute to political activism.

More on Elena Bajo (b. 1976, Madrid, Spain) 

Elena Bajo lives between Berlin and Los-Angeles. Her concept-generated practice is concerned with the social and political dimensions of everyday spaces, the strategies to conceptualize resistance, the poetics of ideologies, and the relationship between temporalities and subjectivities. She works individually and collectively across installation, sculpture, painting, performance, participatory events, film, text and writing. She uses exhibition spaces as studios or laboratories, where an experimental, itinerant, sitespecific performed sculpture unfolds, improvised actions and choreographed movements.
