Jac Leirner will be in conversation with Jochen Volz, Head of Programmes at Serpentine Gallery at the ICA in London as part of the ICA's 'Culture Now' series.
Jac Leirner's multifaceted work is formulated through a process of collecting and ordering; tapping into what the artist has described as the 'infinity of materials'. Since the mid-1980s, Leirner has amassed the ephemeral and incidental products of consumer culture and re-appropriated them into visually compelling sculptures and installations that demand to be both seen and read. Her work references both the history of Brazilian Constructivisim as well as the legacy of Arte Povera and Minimalism.
