You live in a world, and the world lives around you. How much do those influence one another? What are you within your surroundings?
Contact with Niger
Lise Sore’s work consists mainly of self portraits, in which she examines her emotional extremes. Sore fully examines the emotions she is going through during the making of these self portraits. During the many long hours of drawing, which is also a physical effort, she reconnects. In the first instance with herself, after which the work can also connect with the viewer. Through the same process she also reconnects with her country of birth: Niger. The land of which she has no actual memories, where her emotions are all the more rooted. Through ever larger drawings, and now also space-filling installations the portrait becomes an environment one can walk through.
In the exhibition ‘Care-abouts’ Sore engages with her birthplace. In the same way in which she engages with her self portraits, she now engages with the landscape. The landscape of her country of birth: Niger. The land of which she has no actual memories, where her emotions are all the more rooted.
The exhibition will be concluded with a performance by Lise Sore, Jessica van Deursen and Sofie Hollander in which the intensity of the contact with your environment is a central focus point.
