Two years after Elizabeth Jaeger’s solo show ‚Brine‚ on the occasion of Gallery Weekend Berlin 2019, we are thrilled to welcome a brand new work of the artist in our showroom presentation for the 2021 edition of Gallery Weekend.

Gallery co-owner, Silvia Bonsiepe, had a Zoom call from the gallery, with Elizabeth who is in New York at the moment, but who will join us in Berlin from November 2021 onwards for her residency at Callie’s.

Elizabeth Jaeger, Bird, 2020, ceramics, copper, blackened steel, round wood stick, 143 x 95 x 34 cm.

With her sculptures, ceramic objects, and installations, Elizabeth Jaeger (*San Francisco in 1988, lives in New York) succeeds in exploring the relationship between corporeality, perception, and consciousness, between sensation and emotion.

Elizabeth Jaeger, Bird, 2020, detail.

„Elizabeth Jaeger’s objects and sculptures rely on the one hand on the dynamism of their materialities and the play between familiar form and abstract refraction on the other. In the process, they openly express their political content and their emotional urgency. Their special quality lies in this very immediacy.“
