Monica Bonvicini (lives and works in Berlin) makes reference in her works to social-political events and their effects on society and, with that, investigates particularly the power structures permeating and shaping them. She uses diverse media, like drawing, sculpture, installation, video and photography to go into the relationship of architecture, gender roles, control and power. In this process, she always draws both viewers and the exhibition space and its surroundings into her reflections.
Monica Bonvicini has already exhibited at the Kunstverein in Hamburg several times, most recently in the exhibition, Political Affairs – Language Is Not Innocent, for which she was also co-curator. Language is a central point of reference in her works. Bonvicini has designed the stamp, RAGE, casting it out of aluminium, as an exclusive edition. A commonplace office tool gains a cool elegance and dignity through the choice of the material, whilst below its surface things are proverbially seething.
