BARALAYE / ROSCH: IN TIME
In the summer of 2018, Brion Nuda Rosch invited Ebitenyefa Baralaye to collaborate with him as a part of an informal series of short residencies. Both artists brought to the residency and experimental playfulness and fluidly open dialogue that intersected interests in sculpture, painting, and spoken narratives. The result has been an ongoing exchange of ideas, shared reflections on art practice within evolving contexts of life, and responsive explorations in form and media. A loosely defined but mindful structure continues to make this collaboration productive; its main and most active variable has proved to be the element of time: time as a tool in the processing of clay and paint; time as a landscape for shared dialogue and individual meditation on ideas; and time as a flexible construct for containing, extending, and mediating the output of art production. Baralaye and Rosch will present collaborative and individually composed works that are the product of their ongoing investigations in clay, canvas, and time.
