Barbara and Michael Leisgen

MAMAC presents a series of works by the artist couple Barbara and Michael Leisgen, through October 31.

The couple developed a series of photographs from the early 1970s depicting Barbara Leisgen’s body in a natural environment with which she seems to merge. The empathy with natural elements is built up with particular attention to the upheavals of the landscape: like living entities, clouds born or dies, the sun hides or reappears. 

Their work also reflects the encounter between a battered nature and powerless artists, who try to build foundations for a possible resistance language. The photographs are in dialogue with a set of rarely shown videos from the 1970s, highlighting the singularity of their embodied and poetic conceptual approach.
