From London to Ceret, Karin Jolly took her new series 'What's Underneath – En Dessous' across the Channel to the south of France where she has a studio, for her first international exhibition with the portrait painter James Pimm. Together they exhibited their work from the 2nd to the 10th of May in Salle Manolo where the combination of both their very distinct style raised a lot of curiosity and excitement.
Her series is an exclusive range of underwear made of sculpted paint that seeks to reconcile the domestic woman with her feminine, hidden self. She rehabilitates elements of the home like acrylic pain and lime scale and shatters the preconceived, restrictive vision of what a domestic woman is. To express the duality of her roles as an artist and a mother, she kept track of the time she spent on each piece as well as the number of interruptions caused by domestic matters.These serial numbers can be found in the corner of each piece.
