Angels are aliens too is a new installation by Didi Lehnhausen (1993) in which she investigates the life of a painting in relation to time, reality and her own body. Through rituals of bathing, washing, scrubbing and stroking, she treats the surface as a living membrane in which these actions remain visible. Seven paintings will be accompanied by a series of twenty-two drawings and a soundscape in which the musician Imari responds with her voice to the pieces. The installation will be presented on the stage of Tempel, an upcoming place for contemporary artistic experiment in Amsterdam.
The installation opens on November 11th at 17:00 and is on view until the 13th.
