TekhneCOSMETIC
En udstilling af Joyce Vlaming (NL)
og Rikke Ehlers Nilsson

Udstillingen TekhneCOSMETIC tager udgangspunkt i kosmetikindustriens konventioner for her ud fra at undersøge forholdet mellem billedet og skønhedsindustriens sprog, ved at kigge på deres indbyrdes sammenspil, som kan dateres tilbage til opfindelsen af det fotografiske medie, og eskaleres med farvefilmens opfindelse.

Vlaming og Ehlers Nilssons værker beskæftiger sig med kurateringen af farver i populærkulturen, og hvordan produktionen af visualitet frembringer et fælles kommercialiseret begær. Værkerne afsøger farve-, branding- og økonomiske strategier i skønhedsindustrien for at udvikle en kritik af kosmetikindustriens rolle i produktionen af billeder i det 21. århundrede.

TekhneCOSMETIC
An exhibition by Joyce Vlaming (NL)
and Rikke Ehlers Nilsson

The exhibition TekhneCOSMETIC seeks to investigate conventions within the cosmetics industry to approach a negotiation between the image and language of beauty. It explores the intertwined relationship between photography and the cosmetic industry, which dates back to the invention of the photographic medium and was escalated through the invention of color film.

Vlaming and Ehlers Nilsson’s works deal with the curation of color in popular culture and how the production of visuality produces commercialized desires. The works split apart idealized colors, branding strategies, and economies of the beauty industry to invoke a critical commentary on the role of the cosmetic industry in the production of imagery in the 21st century.
