Beni Bischof
I work unrestrainedly and intuitively. Playfully, I condense 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, my self-published magazine "Lasermagazin", which was launched in 2005, attests my eruptive creative drive. The banality of everyday life is disregarded, as are the dramas of the political agenda. I find my material in cheap novels, fashion magazines, advertisements, and the virtual world. I want to break the precious illusion of supposed exclusivity and present an abysmal view of society. My work develops fluidly and explosively. My pictures depict life in all its joy and misery, confusion and burlesques, which I playfully portray, in the blackest of tones, in pictures.
