BENNY NEMEROFSKY RAMSAY is an artist and diarist. His artistic gestures in sound, video and text contemplate the history of song and the gender of voices, 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, madrigals, megaphones, mirrors, naked men, sign language, subtitles, and the voices of birds, boy sopranos, contraltos, countertenors and sirens.
Nemerofsky’s work has been exhibited extensively across Canada and throughout Europe, and is part of the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Canada and the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna. He is currently an artist-in-residence at Iaspis Stockholm.
