BIOGRAPHY + CV
BENNY NEMEROFSKY RAMSAY is an artist, diarist and correspondent.
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 in diverse contexts across Canada, Europe and Asia and has won prizes at festivals in Canada, Germany, Poland and Portugal. His work is part of numerous private collections as well as the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Canada and the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna.
