Winther, Monica

Maleri, tegning, skulptur, performance og stemme

Monica Winther (b.1976) graduated from the Bergen Art Academy in 2007. Together with Kersti Vetterstad she is also known as Mom in the infamous artist duo Mom & Jerry.

Monica Winther’s work often takes form as site-specific installations, which are constructed out of an abundance of text, sound, video, and light. These constructions work as stages for improvised performative events, where Winther takes the role as the ruler of her universe. The audience is hereby invited to enter Winther’s profound, imaginary worlds – worlds that seem to have come into being by an unconscious force. Her work can in this way be interpreted as Winther’s subjective reaction to the structural and social setting of the location where the action takes place.
