Alice Teichert’s latest exhibition, Between the Lines, will take place in the Kunsthalle, the contemporary wing of the St. Annen-Museum in Lübeck, Germany, from June 18 to October 15, 2017. The St. Annen-Museum is one of the most unique museums in Germany. It houses a comprehensive permanent collection of sacred art from the Middle Ages, dating from the 13th century to the first half of the 16th century.
The exhibition will comprise an overview of Teichert’s work, spanning from 1983 to 2016. These contemporary works will be displayed alongside historical pieces that have served as a source of inspiration for Teichert’s practice, such as medieval manuscripts, illuminations, icons and altar pieces. The artist has also created a series of photo-collages which were taken on-site in dialogue with the unique altar pieces of the St. Annen Museum.
“What literally happens between the lines is of great importance to the work of Alice Teichert: She not only makes visible the silence between the lines, words or characters, but also makes us see the space of resonance between each trace, which is equally vital for a communication engaging the mind, senses and the memories that are being translated into a visual poetry.”
- Dr. Dagmar Täube, curator of the St. Annen-Museum and of the St. Annen-Kunsthalle.
