We Are Coming To Freak You Out

I have a video piece in the group show We’re Coming To Freak You Out which opens in Wroclow, Poland at Galeria Sztuki Wsp├│┼éczesnej MD_S tnite! Pleased to be showing with a group of very talented international artists and friends: Klaus Katsu Jan P├Âtter Weronika Skonieczna Kihyun Park Marco Ugolini Florian Rosier Florian Rosier from Leipzig, Germany, Amsterdam, Netherlands, Sao Paulo, Brazil, Wroclaw, Poland & Seoul, Korea. Wish I could be there.




I had the most amazing, life changing Summer. I spent four months living in Leipzig, Germany. I went there to participate in the PILOTENKUECHE artist residency which was located in the Spinnerei ( a HUGE complex in an old converted industrial building that now houses galleries and studios.).

My residency was full of wonderful people and incredible artists from all over the world. Below are photos from our final residency exhibition, which we called Scho╠łneSchnitzelNoise Don’t ask what that means, it made sense to us in our own nonsensical way! ­čÖé

Artists in my residency included the following people: Jan Potter (Germany), Anna Kiljunen (Finland), Tina Metschke (Germany), Siegfried F├╝reder (Austria) and Fellipe Vergani (Brazil)

Pink Shoe Day

Hi friends, I was so fortunate to be able to participate in the Pink Shoe Day Exhibition, curated by Maeshalle West-Davies.

8 female artists (including myself) whose lives have been affected by cancer come together to say it’s not only ok to talk about it, it’s important. 70,000 women in Germany are diagnosed with breast cancer each year. It is the only cancer that’s on the rise. It is in our power to change that.

Participating artists included:

candace goodrich (USA), lily koto olive (USA), yule franke (DE), charlotte eifler (DE), daniela gr├Âmke (DE), madeleine heublein (DE), christina nielsen-marsh (UK), maeshelle west-davies (USA/UK)




leipzig

Hi friends! Hallo from Leipzig! I am currently living here for the Summer on an artist residency at Pilotenkueche ( www.pilotenkueche.de ). I have the pleasure of working for four months in a gorgeous sun filled studio with my other talented Pilots/artists on the program. The country is gorgeous, food is incredible, and the art exhibitions have been really wonderfully inspiring. Keep checking the blog as I will be posting updates of my new work I’m making here in Germany, and will keep everyone updated on my upcoming exhibitions here in Germany.

Tschuss! 

XOXO Lily
