Nana RHB

The Girl with Many Eyes

29.04 - 03.06

With the exhibition The Girl with Many Eyes, Nana RHB presents new paintings, collages and smaller paper works, where she creates a space for reflection on the ambivalent meanings and symbolism of the eyes.

Eyes are often considered a window to the soul and can symbolize a close connection to one's inner self or a high degree of attention to one's surroundings. At the same time, eyes can also represent surveillance and censorship and act as a comment on the increased surveillance and control in society.

The exhibition touches on themes such as identity, staging, censorship and nostalgia, based on Nana RHB's own life in various roles as daughter, woman, artist, wife and mother.

In the painterly process, she works with different layers and overlaps and applies brush strokes over existing photographs in order to create a dialogue with the underlying source material, which remains visible to varying degrees.

The works are made on cardboard, paper, canvas and sailcloth, and she combines large colorful surfaces with parts of different visual material that she has collected and saved over the past few years.

The exhibition presents a present storyteller, and the works are rich in visual richness and complexity, which gives the viewer the opportunity to explore Nana RHB's artistic universe and consider the many ways in which we see and understand the world around us.
