    Kati Heck: Bonnie Bonne Bon

    Opening in June 2021
    Opening in June 2021, Kati Heck presents Bonnie Bonne Bon, an exhibition comprising a new series of paintings, drawings and a sculpture. At its centre, Heck draws on the image of the horse as a motif that has been intimately tied to the human psyche since pre-historic era. Variously understood as a signifier of power, spirituality, compassion, fertility, and equally as subject to the dominion of man, Heck reenvisages the creature as a potent symbol of feminine power. Kati Heck is best known for her depictions of contemporary life, filtered through the lens of a dream-like and often absurdist sur-reality. Through her wide-ranging practice, she creates scenographies that amalgamate sensibilities of the every day, with theatrical and art historical elements, as well as her own personal symbolism.
