Camille Blatrix’s “Somewhere Safer”

KUNSTVEREIN BRAUNSCHWEIG, Braunschweig

Camille Blatrix, Untitled, 2018.
by

Patrick J. Reed

Please consider this a compliment: Camille Blatrix’s solo exhibition at the Kunstverein Braunschweig is so spartan it teeters on the razor’s edge of not enough. Its vibe is expectant and hungry, and it leaves viewers feeling the same. The artworks, too, are cold, hard morsels. Their most prominent quality is... continue reading
