Out of Context: Female Artists from Germany
Beers.Lambert Contemporary presents painter Regina Nieke, sculptor Frauke Wilken, and multidisciplinary artist Heike Jobst in 'Out of Context: Female Artists from Germany', an exhibition that offers commentary related to a political address of the body as a site of repression/expression, response, and metonymy of fantasy and historical reference. Each of the German-born, raised, and based artists (Nieke hails from Berli
n, Wilken from Cologne, and Jobst from Munich) present the body as a porous site of interpretation, but also operate an artistic practice that perhaps peripherally comments on whether there fails to exist a historical canon of work from Germany that incorporates the female artist? And if so, what this means for the contemporary, female German artist hailing from this geographical, political, and artistic context - both contemporary and historical.
