Artist Statement

I am aware of the fact that admiring pre-adolescence and puberty from the safe distance of middle age is like admiring a thunderstorm through a picture window. Yet my work in the previous years has evolved around this disposition. In this place and time, when tweens are hired to sell luxury clothing to the 40-somethings, precocious 10-year-olds are interviewed by fashion magazines and lovers of all ages express their most intimate emotions by means of pop lyrics – it seems strangely appropriate; in a society where youth is the pinnacle of being, and where pop culture permeates our very core, we are all doomed to perpetual teenagedom, for better or for worse.

Pop music, and pop lyrics in particular, play an important role in my work both as a carrier of collective sentiment, but also of personal narrative. These fragmented pieces of banal poetry become internalized and interwoven with our storylines to the point where they become mantras of our everyday existence. Nothing wrong with that.

Artist Bio / CV

Lise Haller Baggesen left her native Denmark to study painting in the Netherlands. Since receiving her BFA from the AKI academy of art and having completed at two-year residency at the Rijksakademie her work has evolved from a traditional painting practice through teaching, curating, and a growing interest in drawing as language, toward a hybrid practice including installation, writing and performative lecture. In 2008 she relocated to Chicago with her family, where she is currently doing her MA in Visual and Critical Studies at SAIC.
