ICI is thrilled that People’s Biennial artist Ellen Lesperance will have her work shown at the Frieze art fair in New York this week for Ambach and Rice Gallery. The work being shown is grouped under the title Dear Pippa Bacca.
“I have been working on a project since last summer, following the path of Pippas Bacca, the young woman who set off in 2008 (with a friend) to hitchhike from Milan to Jerusalem in a wedding costume, a peace expedition, relaying on the goodness of strangers. I’m not sure if you know about her or remember her misfortune, she was raped and killed about 30 miles outside of Istanbul about three weeks into the expedition”
