LEMOS + LEHMANN
Pat Lemos (Spain, 1982) and Lukas Lehmann (Germany, 1986) are visual artists with a BA in Fine Arts from the Polytechnic University of Valencia and the Kunsthochschule Burg Giebichenstein of Halle/Salle, respectively; creators and members of the artistic duo LEMOS + LEHMANN. They live and work between Spain and Iceland.
Using analogue photography, as the main tool, their research focuses on expanded photography and new forms of representation in contemporary culture. Through the dialogues they establish between the images and sound or installation, the duo explores new fields of perception, contemplation and emotion. LEMOS + LEHMANN’s gaze is raw but layered with subtleties, formally moving from the figurative to the total abstraction and conceptually from the natural to the mystical, and to the supernatural.
They start to consolidate their work participating in artist residencies and contemporary art festivals. They have exhibited individually in Ramskram Gallery (Reykjavik, Iceland), The Liminal (Valencia, Spain), gallery representing them in Spain, Lokal-Int (Biel, Switzerland) or White Collective Gallery (Vigo, Spain). Collectively, they have been part of different international shows, highlighting CICA Museum (Gimpo, South Korea) and CAAA (Guimarães, Portugal). Their instants appear in reference online magazines such as OD Magazine, Analog Magazine, C41, Fisheye, Ignant or Minus37.
In a parallel way, Pat and Lukas are founders and coordinators of the BONFIRE project, an online platform hosting virtual artist residencies, providing space for gathering and cooperation between artists and agents of the contemporary art and culture.
