With Margret Holz’s installation work based on process and Michael S. Lee’s drawings which project new trajectories, “Liberated But Not Free” focuses on the active juxtaposition of objects and their pasts.
Margret Holz. Displaced Persons
This term “Displaced Persons” referred to the Western Allies after the war, people who were not native to the place where they were staying. Under this definition were as forced laborers, who had during the war to work in German factories, prisoners, former prisoners and Eastern Europeans. At Hasenhecke near Kassel, a DP camp existed since 1945. The result is a manuscript-assembly of burnt wood and photograms, a montage of photography and sculpture, a localization.
The works of Margret Holz are divided into individual work as well as construction and choreography of places. What makes a place? What has happened here? What impressions have emerged, which tracks, which breaks and spaces are visible? These questions are crucial for my projects and also for the choice of material.
Michael S. Lee. Things Become Things Which Were Once
In an effort to revitalize and redistribute the influences of past machines and natures, remnants are proliferated as a texture and eventually congregate into autonomy once more. The consequence of elaborate past proffers illuminating hindsight and future projections.
Michael S. Lee’s work focuses on the elucidation of process in the plastic arts. He develops reinterpretations of concrete present states and reformulates dynamic interventions to explain, consider, and expand the relationships of forms and objects. Each object, aesthetic, and internal thought is the result of multiple processes, and each is followed by innumerable consequences.
