Rites of Passage

April 4 - April 24 2014 

Galleri Benoni Copenhagen, DK

Galleri Benoni is pleased to present Rites of Passage, an exhibition that explores the transition from youth to oblivion. Truong's incredibly detailed drawings playfully imagine the feeling of aging and the precariousness of time as a surface extension of character. The subjects in her portraits are poised for no specific occasion, neither celebrating nor lamenting their experience of humanity and death. With the experience of getting older, personality and psyche are in a state of flux, making feelings of growth and decay simultaneous and ambiguous. The rites of passage then become unclear, leaving mortality to be donned and adorned by her characters merely as ornament.
