“When we walk into the space of Carola Bravo’s video installation, it appears that the artist is in the room making the drawing in front of us. It is simulated three-dimensional space and at the same time a cinematic and theatrical experience. The artist’s intent is to manipulate the ideas of reality and the representation of reality. Bravo films herself creating a perspective line drawing then projects herself to scale in the same setting in which the drawing was first created.

The exhibition rests on the dimension of time, rethinking presence and environment, and the ephemeral and the performative.In the exhibition Legal Graffiti at Zadok Gallery, the artist not only shows a projected video, but she also places the three-dimensional objects that are in her video in the physical space in front of the projection. Here, Bravo chooses to show the behind-the-scenes happenings of Art Miami prior to the opening of the fair. In Bravo’s work, the chaos leading up to the unveiling of the art fair is as essential to her creative process as are the dozens of dealers displaying works of art in the tent. The possibilities for someone who explores reality and the representation of reality are endless. Consider the graffitiing of a Monet painting becoming possible, acceptable, and perfectly legal.” Bernice Steinbaum
