During her residency at SITUATE in Melbourne Lilo Nein exhibits her project that unpicks the notion of writing and translation in relation to performance.
In her exhibited project Nein unpicks the notion of writing and translation in relation to performance. In 2016, she re-engaged a series of previously built sculptures, bringing them together into a single exhibition and inviting Austrian art professionals to write a short text about each. These texts then became the lyrics to songs for the project’s second iteration. During the residency in Melbourne, these texts have been translated into English by local artist and curators and co-located with the photographic, sonic and written records of the project’s previous iterations as a means of exploring and considering the different kinds of spaces produced through interpretation and translation.
