Love Song Sing-Along, Kris Lemsalu Malone & Kyp Malone Lemsalu
KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin
February 29 – May 03, 2020

KW Institute for Contemporary Art is pleased to present the first institutional exhibition by Estonian artist Kris Lemsalu (born in 1985, EE) in Germany. Kris Lemsalu creates sculptures, installations, and performances that fuse the animal kingdom with humankind, nature with the artificial, and beauty with repulsion, lightness with gravity, and life with death. She combines animal bodies and porcelain objects with found (natural) material such as furs, leather, seashells, wool, or paper in theatrical installations that whisk us off into a world of fantastic imagination.

Endeavoring to erase any distance between herself and her objects, the artist also uses her installations as stages for performance pieces in which her sculptures become an integral part of her attire. Her works carry the memory of local mythologies onto the surfaces of objects that resemble artifacts and byproducts of contemporary civilization. Since Performa 17, Kris Lemsalu has collaborated with New York-based artist and multi instrumentalist Kyp Malone (born in 1973, US) to create enhanced installations and performances encompassing sculpture, ceramics, animation, performative elements as well as music and sound.

The exhibition at KW presents a newly conceived body of work as a continuation of the multifaceted collaboration between the-in the meantime married-duo. The large-scale installation will take up the entire third floor and will serve as an environment for several performances in which the lines between objects, bodies, and action are blurred in order to create an enlivened spatial continuum.
