Brigida Baltar: Brick Works

This book is edited by Katherine Wood. It contains essays by Guy Brett and Luisa Duarte, and features a foreword by Annabel Lucas. This publication has been developed alongside a recent exhibition by Brigida Baltar at firstsite. Both focus on a remarkable body of work that has preoccupied the artist for over ten years, taking her from physical and very personal interventions onto the walls of her house in Rio de Janeiro, to work using the medium of brick dust to consider notions of fantasy and day-dream. Baltar arrived at firstsite with a range of objects, drawings and, most importantly, brick dust to develop her first solo exhibition in the UK: An Indoor heaven/Um Ceu Entre Parades (13 May-24 June 2006). Parallels could immediately be made between her crumbling house in Brazil and the red-bricked Georgian Minories Art Gallery, home to firstsite. The publication tracks the development of Baltar's brick works from the mid 1990s through to the present day. Contextualised through essays by Guy Brett and Luisa Duarte, the book features beautiful documentary photographs throughout.
