Grace Schwindt presents her third solo exhibition at Zeno X Gallery which consists of sculptures and drawings. The title of the exhibition ‘Lacuna’ refers to the process of conservation and restoration, where the gap can either be filled or left open. Connecting the broken pieces together, the cracks in the sculptures are treated as wounds and are not seen as something that needs to be overcome. Schwindt does not perceive fragility and strength as oppositions, but as closely connected notions which often exist together.
Grace Schwindt (b. 1979, Germany) works with film, live performance, sculpture and drawing. Through her work she unfolds visual narratives that explore the fragility of the body, the importance of objects in the construction of memory and history, and the influence of capitalism on society. Her process often originates from specific research and conversations with a wide range of people. The different media are connected and intertwined, with shapes from costumes reappearing in drawings and sculptures echoing performative gestures. Schwindt recently had a solo exhibition at Kunstmuseum St.Gallen and was invited to participate in the Busan Biennale in 2022.
