Heather Bennett’s “Blueprint Kit for Lilly” Solo Exhibition

Bruno David is pleased to present an installation Blueprint Kit for Lilly by Heather Bennett in the gallery’s vitrine space, WINDOW ON FORSYTH (Downtown Clayton, viewable 24/7)
In this window installation, Bennett plays with glossy lips and curled pink ribbons which float over a dusky pink carpet mimicking a set for Teen Vogue. We don’t expect to find the critical here playing precocious as it winks and sways and gazes back. Women acting as objects for magazine advertisements are subtly transformed here to the focused subjects of the images only to then be flattened, inextricable from the object portrait, as they are wrapped around that object and tied with a bow. The small act of wrapping a gift becomes a potent metaphor, exploding within its supposedly quiet, often assumed to be feminine place.
