Auto Body presents POTHOLE by IDA BADAL
Ida Badal’s new work builds on her ongoing exploration of shifts in the current environmental landscape. The show is composed of a collection of sculptural artifacts and paintings where she reflects on perceptions of erosion in both the personal and societal realm. A study in actual, as well as imagined tectonics brings new perspective to reoccurring natural events and documents a dystopian state of familiar places, with references to landmass, inlets, and shorelines. The series intersects a sense of collective anxiety and meditation on where we are and where we’re headed.
In a space whose mission is to preserve, research, and interpret the past, Auto Body finds it fitting and timely to put forth an artist grappling with the passage of time in human and geological terms. We hope that Badal’s work provokes further contemplation and consideration for future generations to come.
Ida Badal was born in New York and is currently living and working in San Diego, California. She studied at Cooper Union School of Art graduating in 2013 receiving a BFA. Badal works primarily in the mediums of painting, drawing, and sculpture. This will be her first solo show.
