In this interview with Louisa Clement from Casino Luxembourg you will get great insight into her show Repräsentantinnen (representatives), which was on view May to November, 2022.
For the show, Casino Luxembourg is hosting two of Louisa Clement’s works from the Repräsentantinnen series. During their extended stay “in residency,” the Repräsentantinnen (representatives) will inhabit various spaces of the art centre, such as the “Aquarium,” the entrance hall or the InfoLab, and will continuously develop through their exchanges with the exhibition visitors. The Repräsentantinnen are lifelike dolls—so-called “Real Dolls”—that are a replica of the artist herself. To this end, the German artist worked with a Chinese company that specializes in the production of sex dolls. The artist’s skin tone and texture have been imitated by means of innovative technological processes such as body scans, microphotography and cinematic movement studies. Moreover, the Repräsentantinnen are able, as far as is technically possible, to imitate human facial expressions.
