Leister, Wiebke (2010) The Skinned City. [Show/Exhibition]
|Type of Research:||Show/Exhibition|
The photography group exhibition 'The Skinned City' was curated by Steffi Klenz for Yinka Shonibare Guest Projects. The exhibition brought together works by Rut Blees Luxemburg, Christian Hagemann, Steffi Klenz, Wiebke Leister, Melissa Moore, David Spero and Eva Stenram.
Wiebke Leister’s contribution ‘Skin Deep’ (2010) aims to portray mind spaces rather than specific places. They conjure up rooms that fold in on themselves, fall down on us, continuously unsettling the conventional figure-ground relationship of our perception in a process of trying to grasp them. Embalming the inner skin of a somehow familiar place, they function like peripheral portraits of space –– at the same time visually evoking a sense of premonition behind matter where sight gives way to touch.
