THE LIMINAL GALLERY
Valencia, Spain

EN

Pat Lemos (Spain, 1982) and Lukas Lehmann (Germany, 1986) are visual artists with a BA in Fine Arts from the Polythecnic University of Valencia and the Kunsthochschule Burg Giebichenstein of Halle/Salle, respectively; creators and members of the artistic duo LEMOS + LEHMANN, active since 2014. Nowadays, they live and work between Spain and Iceland.

Using analogue photography, as the main tool, they explore the concepts of body, environment and time. A triad in which they get immersed through their relationship and the relation established with the places they visit or inhabit. 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 the galleries White Collective (Vigo, Spain), Lokal-Int (Biel, Switzerland) and soon they will in The Liminal (Valencia, Spain) and Ramskram (Reykjavik, Iceland). Collectively, they have been part of different shows nationally and internationally, 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. Art collection MICA (Spain) hosts some of their pieces.

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.

Currently, they coordinate the LUME Contemporary Photography Festival that will take place in the city of Vigo during the upcoming 2021.

ES

Pat Lemos (España, 1982) y Lukas Lehmann (Alemania, 1986) son artistas visuales, licenciados en Bellas Artes por la Universidad Politécnica de Valencia y la Kunsthochschule Burg Giebichenstein de Halle/Salle, respectivamente; creadores y miembros del dúo artístico LEMOS + LEHMANN, activo desde 2014. Actualmente, viven y trabajan entre España e Islandia.

Usando la fotografía analógica, como medio principal, exploran los conceptos de cuerpo, entorno y tiempo. Una tríada en la que se sumergen a través de su propia relación y la que ambos establecen con los lugares que habitan o visitan. La mirada de LEMOS + LEHMANN es cruda pero llena de sutilezas, pasando formalmente de la figuración a la total abstracción y conceptualmente de lo natural a lo místico, y a lo sobrenatural.

Comienzan a consolidar su trabajo participando en residencias artísticas y festivales de arte contemporáneo. Han expuesto de manera individual en las galerías White Collective (Vigo, España), Lokal-Int (Biel, Suiza) y próximamente lo harán en The Liminal (Valencia, España) y Ramskram (Reykjavik, Islandia). Colectivamente han formado parte de distintos shows a nivel nacional e internacional, entre los que destaca el Museo CICA en Corea del Sur o el CAAA en Portugal. Sus instantáneas aparecen en revistas online de referencia como OD Magazine, Analog Magazine, C41, Fisheye, Ignant o Minus37.

Paralelamente, Pat y Lukas son fundadores y coordinadores del proyecto BONFIRE, una plataforma virtual que alberga residencias de artistas online y ofrece espacios para el encuentro y la cooperación entre artistas y agentes del arte y la cultura contemporánea.

Actualmente, coordinan el Festival de Fotografía Contemporánea LUME que tendrá lugar en la ciudad de Vigo durante el próximo año 2021.
