SITUATE / 12 June to 6 August 2017
PROJECT SPACE / 14 July to 17 August 2017 (Opening 20 July 5-7PM)
Lilo Nein investigates the conditions of “artistic speaking”. These conditions range from the qualities and characteristics of the material, by means of medial and technique possibilities in the realization of concepts, to architectural structures as well as economical, institutional and substantive contexts and their norms. For Nein, artistic practice means to act within these conditions and to gain agency from dealing with them.
