Lisa Seebach’s space-consuming course of sculptural formations is reminiscent of a deserted playground at night. Like delicate drawings on a piece of paper, constructions of steel stand shakily in the exhibition space. They evoke notions of processes frozen in time, absurd training tools, or a conglomeration of homemade machines from an unknown industry. Seebach’s sculptures made of bent steel and ceramic volumes appear like highly enlarged drawings transcribed in space. The works’ underlying freehand drawings emerge on site from memory, or are based on research as extracted from observations, abstract circumstances, and individual emotions and thoughts. They refer to architectonic elements, forms and structures that are isolated, modified, and newly combined.
Lisa Seebach (born 1981, Cologne, Germany) studied at the Braunschweig University of Art. In 2016, she received the Friedrich-Vordemberge Prize of Cologne, the Gustav Weidanz Award in Halle and the artist’s prize of Brandenburg. Her work was show in recent group exhibitions at artothek, Cologne, 2016; Kunstverein Hannover, 2015; Villa Arson, Nice, 2015; Idling Gallery, Berlin 2014; and Biennale Mulhouse, 2012.

Ayesha Kamal Khan
Ayesha Kamal Khan’s work hovers in the anxiety of displacement. She addresses the tensions of polarity using impressions of provisional nomadic structures. She uses a variety of mediums including sculpture, video, drawing. Her more recent work is primarily installation based and is subject to change according to the site in question. Khan uses the language of provisional nomadic structures that assert their unreliability in their means of construction. She exaggerates these temporary solutions to claim land. The work looks for a balance, admitting in itself the lack thereof.
Ayesha Kamal Khan graduated from the National College of Arts, Lahore, Pakistan in 2011, and earned an MFA from Pratt Institute, New York in 2015. She lives and works between Brooklyn and Lahore. Khan has been exhibited at art institutions internationally, including the Queens Museum, and participated in the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 2015.
