Eternity is a central promise of art. People have always built cathedrals, painted pictures, written poems and philosophised in the hope of immortality. In her latest exhibition, the artist Louisa Clement deals with the poles of Eros and Thanatos that determine humanity and develops a new sculptural work for the Kunstverein Dresden. Will humans become the carriers of the data implanted in them with the help of the latest biotechnological developments? Are we on the threshold of a "human error" or are we that transformation generation that is on its way to something we cannot yet oversee?


Kunstverein Dresden is pleased to announce INSIDE, the first Kunstverein exhibition by Louisa Clement. An artist who exhibited in museums from an early stage of her career, Clement has been captivating audiences for years with her unique, cross-media formulation of her work. Her artworks question qualities of the human in the digital and make the challenges of technological and bio-capitalist change palpable. In doing so, Clement's highly affirmative works possess a disturbing INSIDE quality: on the one hand, they grapple with complex scientific questions of the present, and on the other, they sink deep into eyes and pores; echoes that penetrate beneath smooth surfaces and know how to trigger unsettling resonances.


Louisa Clement (b. 1987 in Bonn, Germany) has exhibited in various institutions and museums, such as: Museum Frieder Burda (2022); Casino Luxembourg - Forum d'art contemporain (2022); ZAZ 10, Times Square, New York City (2019); Triennale for Photography and New Media at Henie Onstad Kunstsenter in Norway (2020); Ludwig Forum, Aachen (2019); Sprengel Museum, Hannover (2019); Digitale Kunsthalle des ZDF (2019); Kunst Raum Riehen, Riehen, Switzerland (2018); Museum für Photographie in Braunschweig (2018).


In 2015, Clement completed her studies at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf as a Meisterschülerin of Andreas Gursky.
