Benedicte Aubert Ringnes: VENUS & DIAMONDS

01.11.18-18.11.18 (Galleri A)

Utstillingen finner sted i Galleri A


With her recent work, Benedicte explores the strength within the feminine and the masculine. Challenging our predisposed notions of differences and boundaries that limit the scope of our perceptions. It is in the eye of the beholder to decipher the interpretation presented.

Having portrayed “Arnold and Muscles” in her last exhibition, Benedicte now explores the female so-called idols of the past and present: Kim Kardashian, Yayoi Kusama, Bonnie Parker, Venus and Diana. Whereas Benedicte previously has shown how masculine strength is connected to his muscles, she now shows the perception of women as both makers and products of our time.
Both notions of men and women being equally objectifying.

Benedicte continues to play with her collages of well known photographs and iconic symbols. She daringly personalizes this, using techniques from classic art to modern technology, drawing from her experience in digital graphic art and film-making.

The works are presented in a solid, and bold manner where collages are covered in a deep, glossy varnish.
