Composed of shredded paper and tape, Galia Gluckman's entrenchment continues in the artist's 'constructions', first exhibited in her 2020 show at SMAC Stellenbosch. The everyday qualities of its materials notwithstanding, the work appears to be anything but paper and tape: appearing, at various times, animal, human, alien and object. As a proposition for further works, entrenchment offers insight into Galia's invocation of the world around her using only the most modest of materials.

Originally a fashion designer, Galia previously worked between London and New York before returning to Cape Town to pursue her contemporary art practice. Made from tinsel, ribbon and brightly coloured rope, her most recent work explores the party as metaphor. Though non-figurative, Gluckman’s work belies an eye for fine detail and the subtleties of relationships between bodies in space – a concern that has since become increasingly relevant during the pandemic moment.
