Tracey Rose: Shooting Down Babylon
Feb 23 – Aug 11, 2024
Kunstmuseum Bern
Bern, Switzerland

Originating at Zeitz MOCAA, the Kunstmuseum Bern is mounting the large scale retrospective of South African artist Tracey Rose (b. 1974). The artist has been a radical voice in the international art world since the mid-1990s. Her works engage with post-colonialism, gender, sexuality, racism and apartheid.

At the centre is the power of performance art and the body, which Tracey Rose sees as a place of protest, of rage, of resistance and discourse. Her performances examine and critically comment on central experiences in the transition to a postcolonial world. The artist captures her sensational performance practice in various media such as photography, video, installation and drawing. The retrospective shows works from the period between 1990 and 2021.

    Strictly brunettes. Indeed brunette one, brunette the other.
    Capricious by poetics the first by birth, smooth as a straight line the second. The birthplaces of both are Parthenopean. As for one rooted on the cliffs of Posillipo where she also spent the resilient months of the recent Pandemic, while the other belongs to that blood material that protrudes into the vessel of the great swarming artery of Via Foria and its labyrinthine environs, where she still resides.
