Artist statement

Kunst bietet die Möglichkeit, Menschen auf einer emotionalen Ebene zu erreichen. Ich denke, dass die Welt, die wir uns geschaffen haben, oft und gerne versucht sich als objektiv und fair zu kolportieren und sich bei näherer Betrachtung doch immer wieder als emotional gelenkt herausstellt. Die Märkte reagieren auf Unsicherheiten, die Politik handelt im Interesse von Machtgefügen, gesellschaftliche Konvention unterscheidet sich nach Kulturraum und Zeitalter, usw. In einer strikt objektiven Welt gäbe es keine Volatilität und keine Interpretationsspielräume. Meine Arbeiten wollen diese Themen greifbar machen indem sie der Emotion eine plastische Form geben. Letztendlich sollen den Menschen neue Impulse für den eigenen Reflexions- und Wachstumsprozess gegeben werden.

Serien


The artwork series “Be A Lady (they said)” and “FEMME” reflect and translate the complex manifestations of the stereotypes and contradicting ideals and standards about women and their bodies into minimalistic canvas sculptures. The medium used is nails on canvas. The combination is used to highlight the contradiction of hardness as opposed to the sensitive canvas fabric. The material choice and simple form-language represent rawness and strength, but also rebellion against the hard grid of societal expectation.

Be A Lady (they said) and FEMME Series 2019 - 2020, 40x50 cm, nails and acrylic on canvas


FEMME I - III


Be A Lady (they said) [1-2]

“Be a lady they said. Your skirt is too short. Your shirt is too low. Your pants are too tight. Don’t show so much skin. Don’t show your thighs. Don’t show your breasts. Don’t show your midriff. Don’t show your cleavage. Don’t show your underwear. Don’t show your shoulders. Cover up. Leave something to the imagination. Dress modestly. Don’t be a temptress. Men can’t control themselves. Men have needs. You look frumpy. Loosen up. Show some skin. Look sexy. Look hot. Don’t be so provocative. You’re asking for it. Wear black. Wear heels. You’re too dressed up. You’re too dressed down. Don’t wear those sweatpants; you look like you’ve let yourself go. […]” (C. Rainville)

“Be a lady they said” was written by Camille Rainville in 2017 and gained popularity in 2020 in a video narrated by Cynthia Nixon.
