Barbara Kruger - Feminist Artist

The phrases usually make a bold statement and commonly use pronouns such as you, I, your, we and they. She juxtaposes imagery with text containing criticism of sexism/misogyny and cultural power structures. Much of her text questions the viewer about feminism, classicism, consumerism, and individual autonomy and desire, although her black-and-white images are culled from the mainstream magazines that sell the very ideas she is disputing. She layers found photographs from existing sources with pithy and aggressive text that involves the viewer in the struggle for power and control that her captions speak to. Since her early years Barbara Kruger has also created installations comprised of video, film, audio and projection (she produced three large-scale gallery installations between 1989 and 1991).

(be)longing PERFORMANCE Camouflaged in cowboy shirts with fancy stitches made to hide broken hearts and cowboy boots custom made for the walking wounded, deflecting vulnerability with sequins and high heels, this is curious at their most personal and poignant.


Beneath the neon glow of a highway road sign, their yearnings take them across vast desert landscapes in frustrated searches for fulfillment and fitting in. Leslie Hill carries the exquisite burden of newly purchased guitars she can’t really play while Helen Paris exiles herself to yoga retreats and detox diets before finally giving up and retraining as a butcher. "(be)longing is like a road trip into the atriums of the heart, or a song whose first chords fill you with sweet despair... the quiet power of Leslie Hill and Helen Paris's performance lies in its low-key directness, its quirky juxtapositions and its understanding of the geography of loneliness and the myth of return.
