MIDDELBURG.- ‘Show Personality, Not Personal Items’ takes its title from Nora Turato’s 2017 performance. These five words have been lifted out of their original context to take on a new role – as the title for this show, which brings together three artists with similar interests and different voices. The second paragraph of this invitation is a compilation of their voices, which can be recognized when familiar with their respective practices.

The practice of Leda Bourgogne (1989, Vienna) is informed by a wide range of influences, such as feminist theory, psycho-analysis, modernism, experimental film, literature and pop culture. Moving between the autobiographical and the fictional, Bourgogne designs worlds from a feminine interior perspective of her protagonists. She creates a poetic terrain that simultaneously reflects on the fluidity between drawing, painting, video, and text, and renounces any hierarchy potentially assumed between them. Her works question gender identities and refer to Gilles Deleuze’s theory of the “body without organs”, allowing for pluralism and heterogeneity. Leda Bourgogne recently graduated from the Städelschule in Frankfurt. Her work has been shown in solo and group shows in Marbriers 4 (Geneva), Ellis King (Dublin), Roberta (Frankfurt am Main), Apt 203 (Marseille), FdjT ‘What Happens in Offenbach Stays in Offenbach’, curated by Roos Gortzak.

The performances of Nora Turato (1991, Zagreb) are scripted pieces developed through the artist’s omnivorous reading habits that browses through various cultural outlets from literature to Instagram comments and marketing jingles. Turato’s delivery is rapid and one can easily miss a sentence of more depending on one’s attention span, interest, and ability to follow the narrative. As such, the audience catches different lines of the piece and remembers their own sentences, not unsimilar to Tura¬to’s own writing process. Turato’s background in graphic design and its recuperation of language in the service of marketing, lets her swiftly move from high-theory to romcom.* She currently resides at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam, and still records music under the name ‘Turato91’. She has had performances at Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève, Bonner Kunstverein, NAK Neuer Aachener Kunstverein, KW Berlin, Kunstfort bij Vijfhuizen, and Bob’s Your Uncle, Kunstverein, Amsterdam, among others. Her first solo show was at Galerie Juliette Jongma.

Evelyn Taocheng Wang (1981, Chengdu) had been active as a painter in China for some time before continuing her path at the Städelschule in Frankfurt and De Ateliers in Amsterdam. Her paintings, films and performances derive from her personal life in China and the Netherlands and combine a straightforward and at times confrontational tone with emotional, poetic and autobiographical undercurrents. Through her diverse practice, she addresses fixed notions of identity, sexuality, gender roles, ethnicity and socio-economic backgrounds. Her work has been shown at Galerie Fons Welters (Amsterdam), Carlos/Ishikawa (London), Frans Hals Museum | De Hallen Haarlem, Chateau Shatto (Los Angeles), Company Gallery (New York) and Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, among others.
