Through a dramaturgy of choreography, music and storytelling, Lewis’ “Occasions” are composed social arrangements. The artist’s work often addresses the history of the body, the relationship between mind and body, and ecological thinking. Within the occasions visitors encounter smells made in collaboration with Norwegian smell researcher and artist Sissel Tolaas and are welcomed with amuse-bouches created specifically for the occasion by a local chef. As guests we are invited to drift in and out of focused attention and sociality in this contemporary ritual of gathering.
Isabel Lewis is a Berlin-based artist and choreographer born in the Dominican Republic. She has previously presented her work at, among others, Kunsthalle in Zürich, Tate Modern in London, Dia Art Foundation in New York and Ming Contemporary Art Museum in Shanghai.
