Opening during Malmö Gallery Night, Saturday 28.9, from 6pm-midnight
The exhibition will run 28.9 – 3.11 2019
Oscillating between movement and the static, object and subject, the films of Rikke Benborg exist on the threshold between the abstract and the concrete, between dream and reality. The artist explores representations of the feminine and the hybrid performative body using costumes and scenography to create visual, surreal narratives. Through stylized gestures and ritualised repetition she explores human emotions and form, instabilities and otherness.
The exhibition at Galleri Format will consist of a selection of videos from the previous 7 years, and will include a new video filmed in Denmark and Egypt late this summer.
Rikke Benborg graduated from the Royal Danish art Academy in 2006 and has exhibited both nationally and abroad.
