Banks Violette


The cold, minimalist visual language Banks Violette (b. 1973, New York) uses, refers to the dark side of American culture: the gothic scene, satanic rituals, death metal,… Violette’s installations evoke violence, aggression and excess, without lapsing into anecdotalism. They are perceived as settings or decors that evoke a desolate mood, as if they were the scene of some violent act or performance. The alienating atmosphere is intensified by the materials used and the spatial interventions. Banks will fill the exhibition hall of the museum Dhondt-Dhaenens with sculptures and three-dimensional installations, creating a sustained tension and presenting a dark and abstract interpretation of our Western culture.
