Auto Body is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Ida Badal at the Bellport Historical Society. The exhibit will open on August 5th and run through September 17th.
Ida Badal’s new work builds on her ongoing exploration of shifts in the current environmental landscape. The show is composed of a collection of sculptural artifacts and paintings where she reflects on perceptions of erosion in both the personal and societal realm. A study in actual as well as imagined tectonics brings new perspective to reoccurring natural events and documents a dystopian state of familiar places, with references to landmass, inlets, and shorelines. The series intersects a sense of collective anxiety and meditation on where we are and where we’re headed.
In a space whose mission is to preserve, research, and interpret the past, Auto Body finds it fitting and timely to put forth an artist grappling with the passage of time in human and geological terms. We hope that Badal's work provokes further contemplation and consideration for future generations to come.
