In her artistic work, Carolyn Lazard questions the idealization of health and productivity by establishing “radical possibilities of incapacity” (Lazard) as a practice to rethink conventional understandings of time and labour. As a central approach to their solo exhibition, Lazard inverts Kunstverein Braunschweig’s spatial logic by implementing long-term interventions that fundamentally change how audiences navigate the building. A new video piece and a publication will be launched in line with these thoughts. The exhibition will be accompanied by discursive formats.
Carolyn Lazard (*1987 USA) recently realized solo and duo exhibitions at Essex Street, New York (2020) and at Shoot the Lobster, New York (2018, in collaboration with Juliana Huxtable). In 2022 Walker Art Center will host another large scale exhibition by Carolyn Lazard. The project at Kunstverein Braunschweig is the artist’s first institutional solo exhibition in Europe.
