In Galia Gluckman’s tinseltown, tinsel, sealant, acrylic paint and tape combine to create an assemblage mounted on board and projecting outwards. A reflection on artifice and empty glamour, the title alludes to fantasies of glitz, excitement and mystique: all things undermined by the global pandemic. In her recent work, Galia considers the past and future of parties in the shadow of COVID-19, with tactile objects that further reflect on touch and its absence in times of social distancing.

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.
