Louisa Clement: Remote Control

What is the human being in a digital age in which the integrity of the body is increasingly questioned by vehement interventions of medicine and technology? This question is the focus of the multimedia exhibition on display at the Sprengel Museum from 30 January to 10 June. 

The photographs, videos, wall works, sculptures and new VR works of Louisa Clement, born in Bonn in 1987, are concerned with phenomena of the sense of confusion in times of political and societal uncertainty. Clement’s varied investigations into everyday design prove to be seductive yet unfathomable: What is it to be human in a digital age in which even the integrity of the body is increasingly called into question by invasive medical interventions?

In her detail-like photographs, Clement conjures up, in almost surreal fashion, a new image of the body that stands at the same time for the ambiguous vision of a "new human being". With the aid of her photographs taken with her smartphone camera, not only the illustrative function of the image medium is queried, but also the reality of the technically modified human being.
Louisa Clement studied at Karlsruhe State Academy of Fine Arts and Düsseldorf Art Academy. She was a master-student of renowned photographer Andreas Gursky, whose large-format images often catalogue large-scale industrial processes, or artificial environments. This is the artist’s first large-scale solo museum exhibition. Her work has previously been shown in group exhibitions at the Wallraf-Richartz-Museum, Cologne and Braunschweig Museum of Photography. She is represented by Galerie Wentrup, Berlin.
A catalogue will be published by Hatje Cantz including texts by Jana Baumann, Andreas Beitin, Daniel Birnbaum, and Stefan Gronert (160 pages, 24 Euro).
The exhibition is being devised by the Sprengel Museum Hannover in cooperation with the Ludwigforum Aachen
