JUST FAIRS´24

PECCI CAROU / JUNCADELLA /

Mar. 7, 2024 — Mar. 10, 2024

COTT Gallery will be presented in the main section [Booth E13] of the Just Fairs fair together with Fátima Pecci Carou and Renata Juncadella. This edition will take place from March 7 to 10, 2024 at Palacio Neptuno, Madrid, Spain.

Fatima Pecci Carou:
In her recent production, the artist presents a set of paintings whose formats refer to old frames and interior mirrors used in domestic and aristocratic private settings. These ornamental forms already appeared in her previous paintings and now become the supports for her paintings.
The scenes show hybrid and animalized women, located in American landscapes such as a jungle, a desert or a swamp. The bodies establish a communion of intimacy and hybridization with that imagined nature where other ways of inhabiting the territory and producing the land are possible.
The works propose to demystify the association between the feminine and values of inferiority because they are considered irrational, emotional, sensitive, impure, and therefore, closer to nature, which is in turn devalued, desacralized and exploited by the extractivist system. because this is supported by their feminization.

Renata Juncadella:
Renata’s work is based on the tension between the updating of symbolic language and the play of imagination and fantasy. She dialogues with elements of the alchemical and esoteric imagination to put them in relation to a world crossed by the viscerality of the feminine and the constant tension between life and
death.
Nature is always present, and accompanies the scenes either in the foreground, or through a distant but detailed perspective, in which the spatiality of the work is charged with depth. There is an influence of Flemish masters such as Hieronymus Bosch or Peter Brueghel in the use of perspective and landscape. The legacy of 20th century surrealist painters such as Remedios Varo, Leonora Carrington, or Leonor Fini is also present, through the representation of women as sorceresses and alchemists.
In Renata’s work, magical realism generates a system in itself: there the elements take on a life of their own, the limits become blurred between species and kingdoms, and architecture is in constant symbiosis with nature. Renata proposes a personal mythology, where women embody archetypal characters who face heroic insignia of struggle or total surrender in the face of sacrifice.
