Tunings / Afstemmingen (2020)
a floral arranging performance by Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay
Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay is a Montreal-born artist, diarist, and researcher based in Paris. His multidisciplinary practice mediates emotional and critical encounters with musical, botanical, art historical, and queer cultural material, encouraging deep listening and empathic viewing. In his work you will find audio guides, bells, bouquets, ceramic vases, enchanted forests, folding screens, gay elders, glitter, gold leaf, love letters, imaginary paintings, madrigals, megaphones, mirrors, naked men, sex-changing flowers, sign language, subtitles and the voices of birds, boy sopranos, contraltos, countertenors, and sirens.
Benny's work has been exhibited, screened, and performed internationally, and is part of the permanent collections of the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna, The Polin Museum for the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw, Thielska Galleriet Stockholm, and The National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa. He has participated in artist residencies in Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Poland, and Sweden, and is currently one of nine inaugural artists-in-residence at the Fondation Fiminco, a new cultural institution in Romainville, France. In winter 2021, he will be a researcher in residence at the Museo Reina Sofía, Madrid.
On Sunday 11 October 2020, Benny will create a floral arrangement inspired by the work of Filip Collin and Jo Delahaut. This performance is open to the public.
We are happy to welcome you from 3 to 7 pm.
