Lisa Premke © Lisa Premke With her acoustic objects and site-specific performative installations, Premke searches for a materiality and an awareness of collective loss experiences. Abandoned industries, failed political systems or the deconstruction of language - she experiments with the omission and the need for closeness to these immaterial commonalities.

Voice and sounds are materials that the artist uses to incarnate the experience of loss. She carefully takes discarded systems apart and uses their elements, objects and resources for a material translation. It is a reenactment of familiar and at the same time completely unknown situations. Through friction, resistance and reverberation, the material finds a voice that tells itself about itself.

During the residency period in Kerala, Premke will develop a new project that deals with the collective heritage of Kochi. In her research, the artist wants to focus on the international trading history of the port city and look at the remnants that can be found in stories, myths and public structures.
For her site-specific projects, Premke has been invited to international residence scholarships, such as the Košice Artist-in-Residence (Goethe- Institut). In addition, she has participated in numerous exhibitions, including the Berliner Galerie Weisser Elephant, the Großer Wasserspeicher in Prenzlauer Berg in Berlin, the Arti et Amicitiae in Amsterdam, and the Studio 1 Kunstquartier Bethanien.
Lisa Premke also works as a composer and sound designer for film, radio drama and stage.
