About The Artwork

A creative and emotional dialogue between Gilbert’s energetic artwork, focused on decoding layers of subtext hidden within conversation and Ers’ response via painstakingly intricate stitch-work and appliqué. Their partnership is inspired by jungian concepts of psychoanalysis, seeking to explore and represent the union of the male and female; a so called ‘syzygy’ and the resulting alchemy that can be obtained in this union. They created a manifesto which is hand written into each suit. The series of seven liberation suits were recently exhibited in Istanbul Group show ‘ The center cannot hold” curated by Suzanne Egeran featuring the artists: Jake & Dinos Chapman, Sarah Crowner, Jason Martin and Hayv Kahraman, Gunes Terkol

Bert Gilbert is a multi-disciplinary British artist. Her process is one of re-discovering a universal 'Sacred Heritage’, the foundation of primordial cosmologies (Mircea Eliade: Rites and Symbols of Initiation ) witnessed within myth, nature rituals, folkloric storytelling and music. Gilbert is creating her own mythology with each work forming its particular part of the sacred and secular whole. Her work is artefact, installation, wardrobe and performance. Laced with dark humour using a lexicon of hybrid symbology they create a visceral language of expression and simultaneously operate as elements of transferred emotional states. Her focus currently is exploring the dark feminine. Gilbert’s ritualised and obsessive methods are in turn energetic and meditative. What they make signifies a rite of passage, from one state to another, operating as alchemical relics of this transformation, in all their material sensuality. One can read this as both redemptive personal journey or a template for a societal shift. A calling for a ritualised rewiring of the collective consciousness in a high capitalist society obsessed with appearances alone.
