Anne-Lise Coste: Poem Police
Kunsthaus Baselland hosts "Poem Police" by the artist Anne-Lise Coste
Anne-Lise Coste has been working with the medium of painting since the beginning of her artistic career (e.g. in her spray paintings as a political, socially relevant entity. By using text/language, colours and lines on classical canvases or on used, discarded, leftover materials (plastic bags, packaging, pieces of wood, plexiglass, tyres or textiles), painting is a medium for the artist to give these objects an active force and a new reading.
In her comprehensive exhibition for Kunsthaus Baselland, Coste focuses on central questions in her work and takes a close look at our society today with all its fractures and double standards. At the same time, she explores the possibilities of stepping out of any constraints and thereby attaining a new freedom.
