In her most recent works, painter Alex Tennigkeit investigates the codes of today's hip-hop culture. In her large-format canvases, decorative wall pieces, objects and small-format gouaches, she produces installations that illustrate and exaggerate the world of popular culture. She uses visual and textual citations from popular film, music, fashion and advertising, making use of the most superficial elements of the media world. We find naked bodies, smiling beauties, fast cars and other symbols of modern pop culture: Tennigkeit uses sampling to overstate and expose these in her art.
