Description

LILIANE LIJN In conversation with Monica Bohm-Duchen

Panel Discussion and Q&A

Moderated by Gabriella Daris

The panel will unearth the history behind Liliane Lijn’s works in the exhibition, Early Events: Five Narrative Sculptures, and her film, Look A Doll! My Mother’s Story. By looking at how certain, mostly traumatic, events in Lijn’s life affected her artistic practice, the discussion will raise questions of how memory is stored in our body, transforming from psychic to physical trauma and how a dialogue between generations, in this case between mother and daughter, may stand as an enactment of oral tradition and memory and also be transformed into art.
