Overview

Bent: Gender and Sexuality in Contemporary Scandinavian Art looks at the ways in which issues of gender and sexuality inform the work of four artists: Eija-Liisa Ahtila, Jesper Just, Annika Larsson and Annica Karlsson Rixon. Through photography, video and film, they draw from the rich media bank of images of masculinity and femininity circulated in advertising, film, historical art and popular culture. Constructing dialogues between past, present and future, and acknowledging the growing role mediated images play in culture, here Ahtila, Just, Larsson and Karlsson Rixon explore the importance of images of gender and sexuality in formations of contemporary identity.
