    Through an artistic practice that is at the same time visual, textual and performative, Jill Magid (*1973, lives in New York) explores the emotional, philosophical and legal tensions present in the relationships between individuals and authorities. Her creations are marked by a form of paradoxical dynamism in which the artist enters into a flirtation with the institutional structures involved in her research. Recontextualizing authentic documents into new narratives, Jill Magid evokes the absurdity of our relationship with institutions and power. The solo exhibition at Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen concentrates on the figure of the Mexican architect Luis Barragán (1902-1988) and his legacy. It is conceived as a large-scale narrative, following earlier iterations on the subject.
