Beni Bischof, 'Mom, are we in a movie?'


PLUS-ONE Gallery, (New South)

Beni Bischof (b. 1976, Widnau, Switzerland) works unrestrainedly and intuitively. He playfully condenses the grotesque, ridiculous, banal and absurd in a cryptic and ironic manner using a wide variety of media. In addition to drawings, collages, paintings, sculptures, and installations, his self-published magazine Lasermagazin, which has appeared since 2005, attests to his eruptive creative drive. He translates spontaneous thoughts on social and political topics into bizarre and comical messages in words and symbols of disarming immediacy. At the same time, he transports the promising, illusory world of glamour into subtle quotations of pictures and text that neither disregard the banality of everyday life nor the dramas of the political agenda. The subjects of Beni Bischof’s works originate from his phantasy. The result of combining text to his paintings occurs coincidentally, where both aspects complement each other.
