About Christian Lemmerz


Christian Lemmerz (b. 1959) was born in Germany. Today he lives and works in Denmark and Italy. His practice ranges from drawings and sculpture to installations, video art, virtual reality art, theatre, and performances. The medium of marble plays an important role in Lemmerz's oeuvre. In his sculptures Lemmerz solidifies the liquid' beauty of the classical stone into terrible motives, confronting the viewer with themes of death, mutilation, catastrophes and war-topics that most people prefer to leave unexamined and repressed.
