Candice Breitz, Her

White Cube wrote that through her pointed and deftly edited video installations, Candice Breitz looks at the stereotypes and visual conventions in film and popular culture. These videos often explore the relationship between the god-like presence of pop stars and actors, and their awestruck fans. Here is part of the work Him + Her.

Her is a huge work that has been made by the artist using Meryl Streep’s conversations about love in her best characters interpreted from 1978 to 2008. Some of you could recognize Miranda Priestly, Francesca Johnson, or Karen Blixen talking with their personality and style, about totally different points of view in a unique vibrant speech, created by Candice Breitz. If you like it check also Him, featuring Jack Nickolson.

Represented by Kaufmann Repetto, Milan, and White Cube, London, she has now been selected for Singapour Biennale 2011, curated by Matthew Ngui, Russell Storer and Trevor Smith, starting on March 13th. She took part to the major exhibitions including the Johannesburg, São Paulo, Istanbul, Kwangju, Taipei and Venice Biennales. She has also had solo exhibitions at De Appel Foundation, Amsterdam (2001), Moderna Museet, Stockholm (2004), Modern Art Oxford (2003); Castello di Rivoli, Turin (2005) and Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2005), White Cube, Francesca Kaufmann and Sonnabend Gallery (2005). Next exhibition will be in June at Kaufmann Repetto.
