Lisa Kohl, Konschthal Esch - Contemporary art space, installation view, Luxemburg 2021 © Romain Girtgen
Lisa Kohl engages with the poetic notion of non-places and transitional spaces, such as no man’s lands and border zones, while focusing on human life and survival. Existential questions accompany her artistic research on a metaphorical level, revolving around themes of visibility and invisibility, presence and absence, location and placelessness. Her current practice focuses on photographic series, sculptural installations and video-sound performances that oscillate between documentation and staging. Image, sound and material-related elements create images and spaces of association based on real contexts and personal statements, opening up atmospheric and experiential spaces in which the supremacy of reality is questioned in a poetic and sensitive way.
