In 2011, the Antonio Dalle Nogare Foundation hosted in its Project Room, the large installation “There is no bear bear: Corridor (ladder, corner, exit/water)” by the young American artist, Stephen G. Rhodes. The artwork is inspired by two main elements: Stanley Kubrick’s film “The Shining” and Disney’s adaptation of Joel Chandler Harris’ “Uncle Remus Stories” – a film that was highly criticised for its idyllic vision of Afro-American life in the plantations of the South. Rhodes’ work superimposes scenes from both films, combining them with a performance that invades all the available space, turning it into a “House of Horrors”.

 

Stephen G. Rhodes’ work focuses on multi-media installations that examine issues with a powerful social and political impact by reproducing motifs that can be traced to theme parks, movies and museum displays, and analysing them in minute detail until their subconscious structures are revealed.
