ANN LISLEGAARD: 2062

SEPTEMBER 11 – DECEMBER 27, 2009

Entitled with the date when the artist will be 100 years old, the exhibition provides a comprehensive look at Danish artist Ann Lislegaard’s (b. 1962) extended investigation of the science fiction genre. The show comprises six major installations along with other works that explore notions of time, space, and place. In her work the artist employs sound and light architecturally to reflect on and investigate how we perceive and move through the physical and the psychological environments that we inhabit.

Lislegaard’s trilogy of video works, accompanied by sound installations and several site-specific sculptural works, unite elements of recent art history with themes rooted in science fiction literature. Lislegaard reinterprets these varied sources to create experiences within imagined places that lie firmly outside of logic and the habitual.

Ann Lislegaard: 2062 is accompanied by a catalogue, published by theHenry Art Gallery, which critically examines the works presented in the exhibition.

Ann Lislegaard: 2062 is organized by the Henry Art Gallery in Seattle and curated by Elizabeth Brown, Chief Curator at Henry Art Gallery. The exhibition is generously supported by the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, ArtsFund, the Mayor’s Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs, the Danish Arts Council Committee for International Visual Art, the American-Scandinavian Foundation, and the ScanDesign by Inger & Jens Bruun Foundation.
