Salon: Sophie Jung, Lilian Kreutzberger, and Maruša Sagadin
Sophie Jung’s work revolves around the awe of unstable semiotics. With her textual and textured sculptures, she addresses the earnest and often absurd desperation in which uncertain concepts are packed into words, objects or facial expressions, shifting their assumed meaning from work to sentence to song. For the Salon, she will perform a selection of sculptures and elaborate on her recent work Operation Earnest Voice commissioned by Ballroom Marfa.
Painter and sculptor Lilian Kreutzberger synthesizes research into the futility and challenges of modern utopias and the role that urban space plays within them. Her wall-reliefs deal with process, abstraction and painting. Their scale and materiality either reveal or add ambiguity to how the work is read—as a map, motherboard or hieroglyph.
Maruša Sagadin’s practice centers on the relationship between language, architecture, gender and sculpture, drawing inspiration from pop and subculture sources. For the Salon, she will speak about new work that collages images from magazines, LP records and YouTube.
