Louisa Clement


Louisa Clement (*1987, lives and works in Bonn) is concerned with questions of living together. But she poses these questions in a completely different way. Clement uses the means of photography and sculpture to explore the continuing digitalization of human beings. Very concretely, the issue is how this living together looks when people and feelings are replaced by robots and algorithms. She thereby makes radical use of the possibilities of photography and sculpture. Louisa Clement exhibited in August 2020 in the EIGEN + ART Lab, where she photographically explored the interior life of shop window dummies. In addition, visitors could view negative imprints of sex robots in bronze, which play a central role in her work. Their absence in the negative imprints made them all the more present; with that, they gave a form to the discomfiture of the juxtaposition of the digital and the analog.
