Sidsel and Søren Benhcke

Wednesday, 28 May 2008 by Irene Hoofs

...Sidsel's favorite artisist is Søren Benhcke...and I completely understand why...

"Inside my dinning room you will see this painting by Søren Benhcke, called Team Amour, from 2007, which I bought in the beginning of this year – it was love at first sight and I just had to own it eventhough I had never spend that much before on one single piece…

Søren Benhcke alias papfar (1967) works and lives in Aarhus. He works with cardboard - painting, -sculpture, -installation, -action and –streetart and has a background in graphic design and comics – which may explain why I like his work so much – another reason could be the playfulnes and humour that runs through all of his works. Like in his street actions where he adds cardboard faces to sculptures in public spaces or his most famous action which took place in 2005, when he smuggled a giant cardboard-slingshot into Aros - Aarhus Kunstmuseum for  Ron Mueck´s famous sculpture "Boy". 

Søren Benhcke has within few years won great appreciation as an original artist taking streetart into new dimensions – and his cardboard sculptures of oversize pink tools and a complete Ferguson tractor 1:1 is pure craftmanship.
