Artist Monica Bonvicini lives and works in Berlin, Los Angeles and Vienna. She was visiting professor at the Pasadena Art centre (California) and she teaches at the Academy of Fine Arts of Vienna. By using different media as drawing, video, installation and photography, Bonvicini explores the relationships among space, gender and power. In her work, she analyses the construction of sexual identity through architecture and language. Bonvicini's work invites to concentrate on the problem of building through a reflection on gender issues. Some of her works are concerned with the masculinity of construction workers as in What Does Your Wife/Girlfriend Think of Your Rough and Dry Hands? (started in 1999). The artist is also interested in the issues of power within the art world. Don't Miss A Sec (2004) is an ironic comment on the attitude of art fair's visitors: see and being seen. She won the Leone d'Oro at the 48th Venice Biennial (1999). Selected exhibitions include: Desire, Sculpture Center New York (2006), 27th São Paulo Biennial (2006), The Experience of Art, 51st Venice Biennial (2005), 8th Instanbul Biennial (2003) and at P.S.1 New York (1999). The video installations Destroy she said (1998) and Wallfuckin' (1995) were exhibited in de Appel in 1999.
