    “Walking into a Lothar Hempel exhibition can feel a bit like stumbling on to a stage during the interval.” (Skye Sherwin, ‘Artist of the week 90: Lothar Hempel’, Guardian, 3 June 2010)
     
    Inspired by Fellini’s film classic Casanova, Lothar Hempel wants to take us into a realm of dreamlike theatricality. Transforming found and collected images into three-dimensional figures, the Berlinbased artist works where collage, sculpture and installation come together. Hempel’s artworks make many references – to theatre, dance, art history and politics – while their dramatic orchestration provides the structure that holds them together.
