Entrée is excited to kick start the autumn by presenting a new body of work by Lisa Seebach. The solo exhibition entitled I’d Rather Be Rehearsing the Future is an investigation into dystopian fantasies, into a world beyond the tipping point.
Seebach’s sculptural objects may perhaps resemble artifacts in an absurd archeology, as relicts of a future that has not yet taken place, disconcerting and daunting in their captivating darkness. Even so, the ambiguity contained in the sculptures contains a utopian core, like a silver shine from the abyss.
Lisa Seebach (b.1981, Cologne, Germany) is an artist with a focus on sculpture and large installations. Her metal and ceramic works appear like particularly fragile, enlarged drawings in space. Seebach studied Fine Art at the Braunschweig University of Arts in Germany. She has since received several scholarships and awards, such as the Friedrich Vordemberge Grant of the city of Cologne, the Gustav-Weidanz Grant for Sculpture and a scholarship at the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) in New York. Solo exhibitions include When the Stage Turns Dark Tomorrow at Kunstverein Braunschweig, Villa Salve Hospes (DE); Phantom Spaces and Viscous Fictions at Kunsthalle Lingen (DE); How stars are just holes in the sky at Kunstmuseum Moritzburg Halle (Saale, DE); Soft Architecture at Meliksetian | Briggs Gallery (LA, US); Nothing ever touches at TURN Gallery (NY, US) and Sometimes night comes too quickly at artothek (Cologne, DE). Currently she is working on her upcoming exhibition for Rudolf-Scharpf-Galerie of Wilhelm-Hack-Museum in Ludwigshafen (DE).
The exhibition will be accompanied by the text The Great Anti_Utopia by Stefan Ewald in collaboration with Dennis Buchholtz.
