“Immured like rarefied noctiluca or sliced geodes, these TVs are glitzy shells dramatizing media’s narcotic visualizations with Bender’s surgical editing amplifying the violence of homogenizing logics.”
– Critic Alex Bennett, on Gretchen Bender’s “fierce use of film and television as source material” that’s currently on view at Sprüth Magers, London. The “Image World” solo exhibition presents the American artist’s TV Text & Image series and other single- and multi-channel video works from the 1980s and ’90s on CRT monitors and television sets.
