Artist Joe Sola will exhibit his microscopic paintings inside of gallerist Tif Sigfrids’ ear, placing the six tiny oil portraits in her ear canal gap while seated at a desk in the middle of an empty space.“Portraits: An Exhibition in Tif Sigfrids’ Ear” places the focus on the gallerist, namely that visitors should (metaphorically) look inside the mind of the gallerist in order to see the art.

Sola is known for his atypical approach to his profession. In 2005 his Studio Visit project saw him jump out of a second-story studio unexpectedly during a meeting, only to gage the audience’s reactions, thus creating on-the-spot art. This theme of pushing the body to its limits is seen, in many different adaptations, in the majority of his works.

Soa explains, ‘I like this idea of [it being] inward-looking. It’s as if you have to look into the head (mind) of the gallerist to see/experience the art.’

The project is being exhibited at Sigrids’ new gallery in Hollywood showing from October 12th -November 9th.
