Cajsa von Zeipel
October 3 – November 9, 2019
We are proud to present Cajsa von Zeipel’s exhibition Futuristic Lesbian at the gallery. The opening takes place on Thursday, October 3 between 5-8 pm and the exhibition runs through November 9.
Cajsa von Zeipel is a sculptor whose work delves into identity, gender and queerness. She has become known for her white, large-scale plaster sculptures but in her most recent works, von Zeipel constructs her female figures in pastel colored silicone in an evocation of sci-fi and fantasy aesthetics. An assertion of femme visibility and sex positive provocation, von Zeipel’s works celebrate a world of their own creation.
Her show at the gallery in Stockholm is entitled Futuristic Lesbian and will encompass large, twisted, silicone sculptures full of found objects, pins, glitter and junk. Cajsa von Zeipel’s technical prowess is evident in these extraterrestrial sculptures. She has left the reference to classical sculpture and developed an even more complex technique. As opposed to her earlier tall, white sculptures in plaster and jesmonite the new ones are messy and almost grotesque. They seem to float beyond their human boundaries becoming futuristic bodies merging the human body with all kinds of stuff becoming a new kind of species.
A new text has been published on the occasion of the exhibition by Andria Nyberg Forshage entitled The Permanent and Continual Distortion of All Bodies. Please click here to read the text.
