Who: Benedicte Aubert Ringnes
What: VENUS & DIAMONDS
Where: 3rd floor @THE THIEF
When: December 13th – January 23rd (Artist talk 13/12 kl 18:00)
With her recent work, Benedicte explores the strength
within the feminine and the masculine. Challenging our
predisposed notions of differences and boundaries that
limit the scope of our perceptions. It is in the eye of the
beholder to decipher the interpretation presented.
Having portrayed “Arnold and Muscles” in her last
exhibition, Benedicte now explores the female so-called
idols of the past and present: Kim Kardashian,
Yayoi Kusama, Bonnie Parker, Venus and Diana. Whereas
Benedicte previously has shown how masculine strength
is connected to his muscles, she now shows the
perception of women as both makers and products of
Both notions of men and women being equally
Benedicte continues to play with her collages of well
known photographs and iconic symbols. She daringly
personalizes this, using techniques from classic art to
modern technology, drawing from her experience in
digital graphic art and film-making.
The works are presented in a solid and bold manner
where collages are covered in deep, glossy varnish.
Matching the extravaganza of her models, each piece
will come in an exclusive first series decorated by
Juvelér Langaard, Norway’s premier Jeweler,
Sinful, bordering on decadent, but yet in lovable

Who: Nancy Bundt
What: PRINCE – Purple Rain
Where: 3.etasje på THE THIEF
When: 26.april – 21.aug
Nancy Bundt, an American photojournalist who has been living in Norway for the last 25 years, was most well-known in America for being the official photographer for Prince’s “Purple Rain” Tour.
Most of these photographs at THE THIEF from April 26-Aug 29
captured Prince during a 1984 concert at First Avenue in Minneapolis, (the site of the Purple Rain movie) to celebrate his 26th birthday, just before he embarked on his Purple Rain Tour.
These photographs are images of a younger Prince, a guy just beginning his career, discovering himself as a musician and then rocketing to pop-star fame. Many of these rare photographs have never been seen. Some were in the newest re-release of the Purple Rain Deluxe expanded edition.
In one of the iconic photos by Bundt, we see the superstar wearing a scarf, his eyes closed, with a blue hue on his eyelids, awash in purple light.
Bundt, having worked internationally for many Norwegian magazines, companies and publishers has been on assignment in over 85 countries and is most happy living near Oslo.
