Void is proud to present the work of German Paris-based artist Brigitte Zieger. Curated by Gregory McCartney, ‘Other Scenes' explores virtual and spatial 3D images which relate to history and the integration of displacements between image, sculpture and space.
The works of Brigitte Zieger activate the consciousness of the gaze through humour and quiet sensitivity. The artist employs surface effects that exploit prettiness as a means of enchantment to lead her spectators onto the most virulent and radical terrain of political meaning. War and the power of violence are pervasive without being visible or binary. She advances masked, benefiting from the ability of certain images to blind the spectator, deploying work that is critical and sometimes provocative.
Brigitte Zieger has participated in numerous international exhibitions and artistic events such as Abracadabra at the Tate Gallery London (1998), Prop Fiction at White Columns, New York (1997), Facing the Wall at the Museum of Pully and MUDAC, Lausanne (2010), the Digital Hand at the National Museum of Fine Arts, Taipei (2010), Bang! Bang! at the CCA Kunsthalle, Andratx (2011), Metamatic Reloaded at the Tinguely Museum in Basel, Motopoétique at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Lyon, and Late Harvest at the Nevada Museum of Art.
