"Phantom Limbs" Hisae Ikenaga's Solo Show at Konschthal Esch

We are thrilled to announce that "Ventena, mesa, silla" (2012), a sculpture by Hisae Ikenaga from our collection, will be part of the artist's solo show, "Phantom Limbs", in Konschthal Esch (Luxembourg), from 27.04 to 25.08.2024.

Since 2000, Mexican-born artist Hisae Ikenaga has been developing a multi-faceted body of work that humorously appropriates the language of classical sculpture and architecture. The artist collects and transforms industrial and domestic objects and/or combines them with ceramic figures to create hybrid compositions. Subtly playing with the accumulation and collage of forms – some abstract, some recognisable – Ikenaga lends new functions to these 'modern' objects, ones that reflect their aesthetic and mechanical properties. She extends this transformation of volumes and materials to her traditional ceramic-making skills (from modelling to extrusion). Hisae Ikenaga carries this traditional knowledge into the realm of strangeness, where the organic and the inorganic, the fragile and the solid, the functional and the sculptural, the modernist and the artisanal collide.

For her first solo exhibition in a Luxembourg institution, Hisae Ikenaga will be presenting a selection of works that reflect her material and formal research over the last few years, alongside new pieces.
