Portrait Carlotta Bailly-Borg
Carlotta Bailly-Borg
Born in 1984, Carlotta Bailly-Borg is a French artist based in Brussels. Her practice oscillates between drawing, painting on canvas, ceramics, frescoes or painting under glass, working an anthropomorphic imagery that draws heavily from Greek or Hindu mythological sources, medieval manuscripts or Japanese erotic representations. The universal occupation with physical love, is expressed through the depiction of gender fluid bodies whose limbs and spirits are wrapped in entanglement, both in awe and desire, as well as awkward and disjointed towards one another. On show: In Out Of Tune, mutating creatures roam within a restricted landscape, devoid of any indication of time or place. Their movements appear haphazardly, lingering between hesitation and delivering oneself to their instinctual drives.
