Paintings by Fides Becker

06 / 05 / 22 to 07 / 07 / 22

Opening on Friday, 6 May from 7:00 p.m.

The core of Fides Becker’s work is identity as the interaction between the self and outside influences. With the new series of works “Unvisible hand” in the exhibition “Handwork”, she takes up motifs from the earlier series “Perfect housekeeping”, which combines role clichés from photography, advertising, film and pornography and links the various household actions in the background from the figurative scenes with a new context of meaning: here they each appear independent and embody those reproductive activities that receive little socio-economic recognition, even though they – quasi invisibly – hold our society together.
