The exhibition: 'I've got nothing to lose', includes several large-scale dynamic paintings and drawings, including works made in Berlin last October during BanBan's 68projects residency. Women are the stars in BanBan's work. Ballooning to envelop the entirety of the canvas, the figures in her paintings unapologetically take up space with their flesh. Their shapely forms reclaim the traditional authority of the male gaze and reorient the significance of the female figure. Her women take on an active role in their presence, controlling the gaze of the viewer and addressing it in various positions of repose, erotic pleasure, and dominance.
