Evelyn Bencicova / Merror in Fotografiska Stockholm, 15.09-23.09.2018

I curated the first retrospective by Evelyn Bencicova in Fotografiska Stockholm. The exhibition will be touring in other Fotografiska locations.

Evelyn Bencicova works across genres using many techniques and sees the photograph as a means of formulating creative content, rather than calling herself a photographer. The exhibition ‘Merror’ (error/mirror) at Fotografiska smolders with a feeling of discomfort as well as pleasurable enjoyment and attracts the viewer. Sterile minimalist, cool and tightly stripped-down scenarios that simultaneously pulsate with flow and energy. Whether it is a beautiful contact scene between a hairless cat held by an equally hairless woman or architectonic structures formed by bodies, they reflect a visionary artistry.
