Elaine Bradford and Bari Ziperstein met while attending graduate school at the California Institute of the Arts. Mutual interests in mid-century modern furniture, architectural tours, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer fueled their friendship. It was often joked between the two of them that they were the same person. Though they haven’t lived in the same city for ten years, their work is dealing with parallel issues. Both artists are using traditional craft techniques to create new sculptural objects and photographs dealing with feminine philosophies. Bradford and Ziperstein come to these bodies of work from completely different places, but both end up touching on ideas of female shamans and using personal cultural references. Doppelgänger is the first two-person exhibition for the pair.
Elaine Bradford is based in Houston, TX and Bari Ziperstein is based in Los Angeles, CA.
