    TUNIE BETESH

    HOW THINGS WORK

    Tunie Betesh’s practice is a progression of movements that accumulate through day-to-day transitions in the studio. Paintings, mono-prints, photographs, objects, and text, become part of installations that grow over time. Betesh is currently exploring her relationship with technical objects such as drains, magnets, batteries, lights, and circuits, and how gender informs these relationships. Some objects are obsolete, while others are essential components in the surrounding infrastructure of the city and domestic spaces. Ultimately, through their appropriation and distortion, the form, function, and representation of these objects are abstracted. The spectator is asked to re-evaluate them as both technical and aesthetic objects.
