Bergarde Galleries proudly presents Liquor, Perfume, Hair a solo exhibition by American artist Julia Jacquette (b.1964).
A creamy liqueur, bubbles in champagne and dark curls. Julia Jacquette's work is closely related to her fascination with media images. She works with the elusive attraction that commercials can have on people. A perfect curl of hair, worked out in details, makes us long for better and becoming more beautiful. Julia Jacquette gets inspired from pop art en shows in her work a vision on consumer society. Irony and desire, envy and perfection, fiction and reality: These are some examples of paradoxes that continuously return in her work. The exhibition, with primary recent works, is an exploration of human desires. Her works are in all aspects an illusion that confirms as well as critics the mediated perfection.
Simultaneously with the exhibition the catalog Liquor, Perfume, Hair will be presented. This publication includes an interview with the artist by Joan Wickerham and an essay by author and journalist Nina Siegal.
