/exhibition information

/THE LOVING CHILDREN, the title of YVONNE KUSTEC's exhibition, comes from the acronym TLC, derived from the television network “The Learning Channel”. The viewer is propelled into a twisted yet humorous environment reminiscent of a bizarre movie set. The work is a mixture of visual references extracted from the world of trashy reality television and horror movies, and confronts personal tensions arising from constant exposure to the influence of kid culture. The larger than life unorthodox busts of twin girls draw from the exaggerated representations of children in the media to embody both awkward and distorted views around parenthood.
