Johanna Kotlaris +
Camille Lichtenstern
01.12 - 22.12.2018

From the 1st to the 22nd of December 2018, Sonnenstube will present a duo show with Johanna Kotlaris and Camille Lichtenstern. It's the third appointment of BLIND DATE, a series of exhibitions dedicated to the encounter between two artists that don't know each other, one from each side of the alps. This "forced" connection favors a dialogue between the artists leading to the creation of works that talk to each other with interesting and unexpected behaviors. The exhibition will begin on the 1st of December at 18.30 with Johanna Kotlaris in an environment created for the occasion by Camille Lichtenstern.

Johanna Kotlaris is an artist based in Zürich and Rotterdam. She mainly works with performance, installation, sound, video and sculpture. Kotlaris holds a BA in Graphic Design from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie Amsterdam and a MA Fine Art from the Piet Zwart Institute Rotterdam. Her works have been shown in institutions across Europe and overseas. Recent and future residencies include Rupert Vilnius and AiR Berlin Alexanderplatz. She was awarded with prizes and grants amongst others from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Pro Helvetia and Basler Kunstverein.

CamilleLichtenstern was born in Lyon in 1989. She spent her childhood around the world between Brasilia, Athens, Bern, Hong Kong, San Francisco. She obtains her bachelor in visual arts at ECAL Lausanne in 2012 winning Ernest Manganel Foundation award and in 2014 she earns the “Prix and d'encouragement de la FondationAlice Bailly”. Right now Camille lives and works between Paris and Lausanne as a set designer and visual artist.
