About the Exhibition
“Futher Inversions: ‘Inside/Out’” highlights five Eyebeam projects that probe at the porous boundary between the external and the internal, by examining how technologies make visible, audible or thinkable that which is normally hidden away inside. In this context, Lilian Kreutzberger’s paintings interrogate and layer invisible connectivities. Her work –and the other works in the exhibition- are examples of technology in an expanded sense: they are physical and conceptual tools by which we navigate and ultimately transform our contexts.
About Lilian Kreutzberger
Lilian Kreutzberger (born 1984, The Netherlands) graduated from the Royal Academy of Art, the Hague and received an MFA at Parsons New School, New York. As painter and sculptor, Lilian Kreutzberger aims to synthesize her research into the futility, dilemmas and challenges of modern utopias and the role that urban spaces play within them. Moments in which the reality does or does not match the previously imagined are both source and the condition of the work itself. Abstractions such as models and systems are explored in Kreutzberger’s work, both as a desire or objective of imposing a structure onto the world, while simultaneously exploring the limits of these forms to serve as point of reference in urban planning and so forth. Thematics such as location, site, dislocation, absence and reflection, both physical and psychological recur in her sculptures, paintings, drawings and installations.
Kreutzberger’s work has been exhibited at the Gemeentemuseum, The Netherlands; the Royal Palace, Amsterdam; World Expo 2010, Shanghai; The Last Brucennial, NY; The Kitchen, NY and her work is included in major collections. Kreutzberger was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship, Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation and Mondriaan Fund grants, the Buning Brongers Prize and nominated for the Royal Award for Modern Painting. She was selected for upcoming residencies at Socrates Sculpture Park, NY; Mana Contemporary, New Jersey; and Existentie, Ghent, Belgium.
