Silvana Bismarck Speaks - A talk by Liliane Lijn

Event ended

Silvana Bismarck Speaks - A talk by Liliane Lijn

From GBP 5.00


Online Talk followed by Q&A

Tickets: £5

A strange avatar born from a dream heralds the talk that Liliane Lijn will give for DACS. 

Dreams and visions have always inspired her works, guiding her art practice and her life. A large part of her work, since the early 90’s has looked at her body, her psyche and the many paths taken by memory and has led her more recently to write an autobiography.

Join us to hear Liliane speak about her recent writing, and how it connects to the diverse elements of her artistic practice. 

About the artist
Liliane Lijn (1939) was born in New York. Studying and working in Paris in the early sixties, before moving to London in 1966. Liliane Lijn became friends with many of the poets of the Beat Generation and was one of the first artists to introduce kinetic text into her work.
Internationally exhibited since the 1960s, her works are held in numerous collections including Tate, British Museum, V&A and FNAC in Paris.
Liliane Lijn works across media – kinetic sculpture, film, text, performance and collage – to explore language, mythology and the relationship between light and matter.

Her most recent exhibitions are I am She at the Ordet Art Space in Milano and The Sky as Studio: Yves Klein and his Contemporaries, Centre Pompidou Metz until February 2021. Her work is included in the upcoming Guangjiu Biennale, Minds Rising, Spirits Tuning, February- May 2021.

Liliane Lijn is represented by Rodeo, London/Piraeus.
