Alisa Baremboym's eclectic and hermetic
work is receiving a great deal of attention,
judging by the number of exhibitions in
which her objects have been featured and
by the critical literature they have generated.
Her sculpture juxtaposes materials and
processes, opacity and transparency, lightness
and weight, abstraction and figuration,
the past and the future, the illusion of
perfection versus the reality of its opposite.
There are also elements of social engagement
and playfulness. Baremboym's work is
not easily pinned down, a characteristic that
seems particularly à; propos of our current
social and cultural condition.
