TEXT

AURORA PELLIZZI’s TRANSFIGURATION
by Gini Alhadeff

Aurora Pellizzi’s object-images are the result of painstaking labor, composed of thousands of small repeated gestures, much like the precise pencil drawings by Vija Celmins representing waves, or the exacting renderings of lines and grids on canvas by Agnes Martin. Her subject, the female body, is always in the presence of another though hidden current which is patience itself—the patience to which a woman is bodily subjected, from procreation to birth and breast-feeding. This lends the images a masterfully contained and rechanneled force resembling rage that ripples through the surface of the square renderings.

INTERVIEW

 

Gini Alhadeff: When did you begin this series on the female figure? Can you remember what started it?

Aurora Pellizzi: I think the first piece would be the video I made of the moving green screen poncho. That’s when I started playing with this sort of abstraction and figuration. The gesture of the cut in the screen was already a garment, but it was also the female body.

GA: You made that at Cooper Union?

AP: In 2010. And from that gesture and that relationship between the garment and the body, and the symbol of the body, too, I went on to do pieces that were more abstract— triangles, woven, hand-dyed, and hand-woven on backstrap looms, creating canvases that had, again, abstract shapes—a slit, a diamond, or a triangle.

PUBLICATION

 

TRANSFIGURATION
by Aurora Pellizzi
printed by Can Can Press

TRANSFIGURATION is a nine ink risographic publication printed by Can Can Press, an independently-run printing press and publishing house in Mexico City.

The book brings together 38 color plates based on Aurora Pellizzi’s latest series of sculptural/pictorial wall–hangings made of naturally hand–dyed, felted and woven wool. In keeping with the artist’s investigation of natural dyes and pigments, each plate explores chromatic relationships through carefully designed layering of the eco-friendly rice–based ink characteristic of the riso printing process.

Within the square bounds of the page, figure and ground twist, turn and unfold, oscillating between abstraction and figuration.

The book was printed on the occasion of the exhibition by the same name at Canada Gallery, New York and is currently available in New York at Canada Gallery & Judi Rosen; at Oven Universe in Sapporo, Japan; and online in Mexico and USA, here.
