Bunny Rogers
Self Portrait as clone of Jeanne D’Arc

25.10.2020 to 18.04.2021
Hamburger Bahnhof – Nationalgalerie der Gegenwart

Hamburger Bahnhof is presenting Bunny Rogers’s installation Self Portrait as Clone of Jeanne D’Arc. The special exhibition is in recognition of the gift of the work by private donors as a token of their gratitude to Udo Kittelmann, the director of Nationalgalerie (National Gallery), who is leaving his position at the end of October 2020. This key work by the American artist draws on personal and pop-culture references that reflect on the complexity of youthful femininity with its associated fears, intensity and narcissism.

In her works Bunny Rogers (b. 1990, Houston, Texas) plays with ideas of identity and deals with sensitivity and vulnerability as well as friendship and marginalisation. She is often inspired by characters from television series, video games and the internet. In her 15-part, large-format series Self Portrait as Clone of Jeanne D’Arc (2019), Rogers adapts the figure of Joan of Arc from the animation series Clone High, in which a school is populated by clones of historical figures. In the role of Joan of Arc’s alter ego, the artist presents herself in various situations in these images with their allusions to everyday life and popular culture, transforming the exhibition space into an atmospheric stage of emotions.

Bunny Rogers’s works were last shown at Hamburger Bahnhof in the exhibition moving is in every direction. Environments – Installations – Narrative Spaces (2017). She is already represented in the Nationalgalerie collection with the work Mandy’s Piano Solo in Columbine Cafeteria (2016).
