Skin. A duo presentation by Sophie Langohr & Charlotte Lagro about the human skin as a canvas and an object of research.
Visual artist Sophie Langohr (Liège, 1974) revisits the history of art by testing and reinterpreting iconographic codes expressed in historical paintings and sculptures. In doing so, Sophie simultaneously questions our current systems of representation. The new work she presents here is a follow-up to her recent series Drapery, which was shown at the last International Biennial of Photography and the Visual Arts in Liège (BIP Liège, 2014).
The work of Charlotte Lagro (Maastricht, 1989) deals with themes such as the human body and the choreo-graphy of daily acts. Simplicity, soberness, precision and concentration play a central role, both in the creation and presentation of her work. Charlotte’s work has been nominated for several prizes, including the Hermine van Bers Prijs in 2013.
MUAS #2 presents the work of artists from this region. The theme of this edition is 1.5 hours. The MUAS partnership will showcase the work of artists who live close-by and yet seem far away – a distance of 1.5 hours away by car. The idea is based on a radius of 100 km from Maastricht – an exciting region that offers a diversity of artistic environments and discourses.
