SITUATE / 12 June to 6 August 2017
PROJECT SPACE / 14 July to 17 August 2017 (Opening 20 July 5-7PM)
Lilo Nein’s work investigates the conditions of ‘artistic speaking’ by exploring the qualities and characteristics of materials, and the possibilities of different techniques in order to realize different concepts. She explores architectural structures, as well as economic and institutional structures to reveal their foundations. For Nein, artistic practice means to act within these conditions and to gain agency from her interactions with them. Lilo Nein’s exhibition at Project Space is an extension of her project Writing Performance, which is a long-term investigation into the function of writing within performance and collaborative-based practice.
