Video installation, photography, sculptures, and live performance in a solo exhibition by Jeanette Mansson Rodell
Golden Mint Productions presented:
– a story to be told through the strategy of performance and video art
By using her body Jeanette Mansson Rodell is expressing the unselected anger she feels against being diminished as a woman. In a series of exposed self portraits photographed over a long time she plays with the ideals of beauty: can appearance reveal inner sorrow?
It’s about being sick of one self, a desire to escape, being angry and disappointed, and ending up in self-hate. By playing different roles she tries to find herself: from where comes the anger?
But above it all she wants to say something: she had enough.
“This is how the story can be told. Through art. Through paint. By using my body, my identity. By canalizing my history, our history, and all the anger. Because it doesn’t stop.”
“I paint myself because I am so often alone and because I am the subject I know best.” - Frida Kahlo
