Press Release

/
Galerie Gilla Lörcher| Contemporary Art is proud to present the second solo exhibition of US American artist Rosemary Lee. The artist presents her most recent research-based artworks. These works bring together wide-ranging interests in technology, science, literature, and media philosophy into a focused and concise investigation. Employing an equally diverse range of media to their subject matter, including print, sculpture, and drawing, each piece uses its medium to articulate its message.

Deconstructing technology down to its components in the series The Typesetter's Ruminations, Rosemary Lee draws connections between electronics, their mineral origins, and alphanumeric code. In text-based images composed of chemical formulas for common elements used in electronic devices, she explores the relationship of coding to the materiality of media. Using the substrate as a medium of expression, the works in the exhibition examine how memory is embedded in material: encoded in silicon, gold, and other elements. The artist mines poetry out of chemical composition and the structure of substances, revealing parallels between computer codes, chemical formulas, and human language.

Rosemary Lee, born 1986 in Providence, USA. She lives and works in Copenhagen. The artist studied from 2004 to 2008 at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts (Paris, France) and at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) (Chicago, USA) (Bachelor of Fine Arts 2008). In 2012 she completed her Master of Fine Arts at the European Graduate School (Saas-Fee, Switzerland).
She received the Ike and Florence Sewell Scholarship and the Graduation Fellowship from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (USA, 2007 and 2008), and received Panmediale Projektförderung (Berlin, Germany, 2012) with her artist collective. In 2014 she received the Vilém Flusser Residency for Artistic Research grant (Berlin) and in 2015 she was awarded the work grant of the Statens Kunstfond (Copenhagen).
Her work has been presented nationally and internationally, among others in (selection): Hyde Park Art Center (Chicago, USA); Heaven Gallery (Chicago, USA); Phaiz (Chicago, USA); Victoria Art Center (Bucharest, RO); Haus der Kulturen der Welt, transmediale (Berlin); Luis Adelantado (Valencia, ES); Palais des Beaux Arts (Vienna, A); Kunsthal Charlottenborg (Copenhagen, Denmark); Gallery Walden (Berlin); Freies Museum (Berlin); Galerie Gilla Lörcher I Contemporary Art (Berlin).
