"Cuttings"
2001-05-10 until 2001-07-15
O.K. Center of Contemporary Art
Linz, , AT Austria

We all experience forms of multiple identification, and our identity is never exclusively male or female, black or white. (Candice Breitz) In an extensive show, the O.K presents the penetrating works of the young South African artist: 8 video installations and photo series exploring the themes of pop culture, sexuality, feminism, racism and ethnicity: The Babel Series, Four Duets, Karaoke, Soliloquy Trilogy, Group Portraits, Rorschach Series, Ghost Series, Rainbow Series

An uproar was the response to a series by the artist, born 1972 in Johannesburg, of collaged and subsequently photographed pictures from the Rainbow Series (1996). In this, Breitz combined photos of body parts of white women from porno magazines with views of black African women on traditional postcards.

Candice Breitz will live and work at O.K as artist in residence for the duration of the exhibition, and the results will be shown on June 26 as part of the presentation NEW CUTS.
