Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay is a Montreal-born artist and diarist. His artistic gestures in sound, video and text contemplate the history of song, the rendering of love and emotion into language, and the resurrection and manipulation of voices – sung, spoken or screamed. In his work you will find bells, bouquets, enchanted forests, folding screens, gay elders, glitter, gold leaf, love letters, imaginary paintings, countertenors and sirens. As an Artist in Residence at Iaspis, Nemerofsky is completing a series of sound pieces for the audioguide system of Stockholm’s Thielska Galleriet.
