Iliodora Margellos: Fragments of Transparencies
1923 S Santa Fe Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90021
Sep 17, 5 PM - 8 PM — ends Oct 22, 2022
Baert Gallery is pleased to announce Iliodora Margellos’ (b. 1985, Minneapolis, MN. Lives and works in Athens, Greece) Fragments of Transparencies, the artist’s first solo presentation with the gallery. Greek artist Iliodora Margellos works with steel wire mesh, fiber, glass beads, and embroidery to explore the entanglements of art history, handicraft, and femininity. The exhibition will encompass a grouping of sculptural and mixed media pieces. In her long-time commitment to yarn, embroidery, and weaving, Margellos subverts the formal Modernist legacies of abstract painting and a-political expressionism from a feminist perspective informed by an ontological investment in the phenomenology of physical encounter and manual labor.
