Lisa Seebach (b. 1981 in Cologne, Germany) makes sculptures appearing like enlarged scenographic drawings transcribed in space by blurring the boundaries of the mental and physical, the material and immaterial space in order to create psychological spaces, bodily experiences of thoughts. The use of handmade glazed ceramics and steel typifies her work.
Seebach received both her master’s and undergraduate degrees at the Braunschweig University of Art, Braunschweig, Germany. Seebach is the recipient of numerous awards and grants. In 2017, Seebach received the Kunstfonds Bonn Scholarship and she recently completed a residency at the International Studio and Curatorial Program (ISCP) in New York. She also received the Friedrich-Vordemberge Prize, Cologne, the Gustav Weidanz Award, Halle and the Artist’s Prize of Brandenburg, all in 2016.
