Vernissage: 6th of May 2011, Tegen2 (Stockholm)

I love to hate the way I love you.

I hate to love the way I hate you.

This exhibition by Patricia Bentancur is formed by drawings, photographs, objects and videos and is according to herself based on (our) own collective memory. Through personal references the artist recalls the mnemonic context of her home country, Urugay, as well as Latin America and other parts of the world.

Narratives evolve between memory and obscurity, leaving questions of reality and story telling. Through simplicity the artist pervades and provides cues for a foundation meaning proposing the subjects of communication, informational manipulation, silence and blindness as the intricate conflicts around the world.

Bringing together different pieces by using artistic devices as tools, Patricia Bentancur reflects on contemporary social and political matters from an individual point of view.
