Produced on the occasion ofContinuous Moment: Big Foot’s Studio, VCA Margaret Lawrence Gallery, 5 October–5 November, 2016.

Continuous Moment: Big Foot’s Studio is part of Bertoli’s ongoing research and investigation into Picasso’s play Le Désir Attrapé par la Queue (Desire Captured by the Tail). Referring to both a 1944 reading of the play and a staging of the play in 1967 by Jean Jacques Lebel, Bertoli’s work addresses ideas of repetition, reprise and continuity. Like Picasso’s text and Lebel’s production, Bertoli draws on a vast network of references and influences. In this light, Continuous Moment: Big Foot’s Studio can be understood as an assemblage of existing voices through which Bertoli is part of the aggregating authorship around ‘Le Désir’.
