Simone Eisele uses the symbolism of historical phenomena, customs and rituals. Overshadowed by their advancing commercialization, the origins of traditional celebrations such as Valentine's Day or Halloween are no longer familiar today. However, they are based on codes (signs) that have been handed down for a long time, which Eisele isolates and transfers to her objects made of textiles, wood and rigid foam. Combined with elements from pop culture, Eisele's peculiar images create a moment of superimposition in which creepiness and romance, humor and kitsch, reality and fiction collide.
Simone Eisele (*1994, Reutlingen) studied at the Kunsthochschule Mainz as well as at the Royal College of Art in London. Frischzelle_30" represents the artist's first solo museum exhibition.This content has been machine translated.
