Bärbel Rothhaar
back The exhibition BUKJA – BUNDLE was a cooperation with the Israeli photographer Osnat Bar-Or, who documents in her photos findings from the ground and in the wastelands of a barren, and politically and socially torn country : traces of violence, abuse and neglect, both on a literally and metaphorically level as a feminist, environmentalist and political activist.

In her cycle of paintings, Bärbel Rothhaar cites images from Bar-Or´s photography and juxtaposes them with her own, often ambiguous, symbols. The grid structures of branches for instance are not necessarily prison bars, but could also symbolize a basic structure providing stability. The theme of these paintings is the interplay between rigidity and movement, stillness and departure, expulsion and arrival, destruction – and the beginning of new life.

Exhibition at Galerie Samuel Lallouz, Montreal.
