Bianca Maria Barmen New Works exhibition

Swedish Sculptor Bianca Maria Barmen
New Works made in Japan, “Yama-Tora-Mori”

AIT is pleased to host a reception for new works created by the current artist
in residence, Bianca Maria Barmen, supported by IASPIS, Sweden.
An image or disturbing news come across in a newspaper or on TV may be the starting
point for her works. At first glance, her small installation-like works with children
 or animals such as a rabbit, monkey or dog may appear to represent the presence of
the inferior. Yet what lies beneath is her homage to immense sculptures from the Olmec
civilization of ancient Mexico, or the great world heritage temple, Angkor Wat of Cambodia.

Over nearly 3 months in Tokyo, Bianca Maria Barmen has created a set of small bronze sculptures
and a drawing. The artist will be present at the reception.
For more details, please visit AIT`s website.

Bianca Maria Barmen (b. 1960) lives and works in Lund, Sweden and in Cambodia.
Her works were presented at the Frieze Art Fair in London in 2007 and have been collected by many
institutions including the Moderna Museet, Stockholm.
