Item description for Candice Breitz: Mother & Father by Marcella Beccaria...
Breitz employs a variety of darkly humorous and often disturbing tactics to strike out at stereotypes and visual conventions in the media and in popular culture. Breitz appropriates photographs and other visual fragments and recontextualizes them in bold, sometimes seemingly tasteless images. Conceived specifically for Castello di Rivoli in Turin, Mother + Father questions the canon of beliefs about parents that television and movies have trained the public to accept on a screen—deeply personal aspects of our lives that must be seen against a ground of real life. This is contemporary art hard at work to redress the seeming innocent distortion of popular culture.
Candice Breitz has participated in numerous exhibitions including "Remix: Contemporary Art and Pop" at the Tate Liverpool and will participate in this year's Venice Biennale. Marcella Beccaria is curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Castello di Rivoli. Her books include Vanessa Beecroft Performances 1993-2003 (Skira, 2003) and Thomas Demand (Skira, 2003).
