Esther Schipper is pleased to announce the representation of Jac LeirnerFebruary 13, 2020
Jac Leirner was born in 1961 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, where she lives and works.
The works of Jac Leirner are often created from mundane or formally unremarkable materials such as bank notes, blankets, cigarette paper, or water levels. Her large-scale installations recall the formal restraint of minimalist seriality and the evocative use of found materials characteristic of Arte Povera, while at the same time offering commentary on social codes.
In 2019, the artist won the prestigious Wolfgang Hahn Prize awarded by Museum Ludwig, Cologne.
