Karin Lehmann

Characteristically Karin Lehmann’s practise involves exploration of materials and their properties, combining substance and process until a work is manifested in the designated space. Lehmann applies processes like heat, pressure or gravity to elicit responses from basic materials, such as sheet glass, plaster or clay, and the outcome of the procedures are most likely exhibited in situ. The results are minimal, concise, delicate arrangements.

Recent solo exhibitions include Miart, Milan in 2017, Förderverein für aktuelle Kunst, Münster in 2014 and Centre PasqArt, Biel in 2013. Group exhibitions include Narrativ/Performativ, Kunstraum Riehen, Day 19, even later, Nomas Foundation, Rome and Don’t Talk to Strangers, Random Institute, Zurich. Karin Lehman lives and works in Bern, Switzerland.
