The group show 'pər-ˈsō-nae' will reflect on the aspects and perspectives of figurative contemporary sculpture.

About

We live in ambivalent times in regard to the 'bodily' – on the one hand, we are experiencing a constant drift into the digital/virtual that encompasses all areas of life; on the other hand there is at once an increase in this longing for 'real-ness', tangibility and sensation that almost takes a manic streak. Sculpture responds to our desire for the physical as it gives a form to reality and negotiates concrete topics by means of their literal corporeality. It raises questions of identity, relationship structure, the perception of experience and space. Hyper-reality and the delimitation of the body can be as well in focus as bio-politics, consumption, pop culture, digitalism and the personal localization within these structures. The artists invited elaborate in their artistic practice in a particular and complex manner with aspects of the figurative and have developed an authentic and distinct artistic language of expression.

Featuring: John Ahearn, Elizabeth Jaeger, Kris Lemsalu, Tony Matelli, Lionel Maunz, Adam Ulbert, Francis Upritchard, Cajsa von Zeipel
