Lisa Rosenmeier (Denmark)

Lisa Rosenmeier

Lisa Rosenmeier’s works are a thematic exploration of various aspects relating to our perception of the world in which we live. They examine the ways in which our era and its forms of visual expression impact on the formation of both an individual and also a common human identity. In her artistic practice Lisa Rosenmeier focuses on a small number of large-scale projects. These projects are based on the gathering and mapping of data from cross-disciplinary fields in the border zones between art, psychology, sociology and cultural history and are realised through the use of a wide range of media and forms of expression. In her most recent projects, such as ”House of Love” and ”Memento”, the structure of the works is constituted by multiple layers and strategies in interaction with a variety of spatial contexts, for example museums, the Internet, the mass media (in particular, advertising) and certain ”spaces” specially selected for the purposes of the project. Lisa Rosenmeier presents the viewer with new linguistic and visual phenomena that are combined to create suggestive, many-layered cognitive spaces in which the viewer is involved both mentally and physically. Art is an important contributor to the way in which a society sees itself, which means that Lisa Rosenmeier’s projects are not merely innovative in respect of their structure but also stand as meaningful concentrations of the present time, thereby becoming part of the ongoing process by which identity is formed. Lisa Rosenmeier (b. 1959) graduated from the School for Media Art at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (Cand. Phil.) in theory and communication of art in 1993. She had previously completed the 4-year diploma course in textile design at Denmark’s Design School (1987) and has taught at its institutes for many years.
