    Lizzi Bougatsos

    Lizzi Bougatsos

    Lizzi Bougatsos works in sculpture, collage, installation, writing, and performance. She appropriates cultural and commercial detritus such as posters and advertising and re-purposes them with painted or collaged elements to expose the narratives that are woven into the visual fabric of the city and popular media. Her practice is deeply responsive to the politics of media representation, and does not shy away from controversial issues such of climate change and human rights. Bougastsos frequently employs comedy and humor as a means to disarm and to comment on the moment in which we live. Her sculptures in ice are regarded as performances; they exist only for a short period of time, and as such, they are an escape from the ever prevalent realities of everyday life.

    Martin Kersels

    Martin Kersels

    Artist Martin Kersels discusses his work.

    Kersels was born in Los Angeles, California, and holds a BFA and MFA from the University of California, Los Angeles. His body of work ranges from collaborative performances with the group SHRIMPS (1984 – 1993) to large-scale sculptures such as Tumble Room (2001). His interest in machines, entropy, sound and dissolution has produced work that examines the dynamic tension between failure and success, the individual and the group and the thin line between humor and misfortune. Since 1994, his work has been exhibited in such venues as the 1997 and 2010 Whitney Biennials, Centre Georges Pompidou, J. Paul Getty Museum (Los Angeles), MAMCO (Geneva), MOCA (Los Angeles), Kunsthalle Bern and Tinguely Museum (Basel). He has taught at the California Institute of the Arts, and is director of the graduate sculpture department at the Yale School of Art. Kersels lives and works in Connecticut and is represented by the galleries Mitchell-Innes & Nash, in New York, and Galerie Georges-Philippe & Nathalie Vallois, in Paris.
