Widely exhibited since the 1970s, Dujourie’s work has gained international prominence through such large-scale exhibitions as Documenta 12 (2007), the 7th Gwangju Biennale (2008), Sharjah Biennial 9 (2009) and the 21st Biennale of Sydney (2018). S.M.A.K., Ghent, and Mu.Zee, Ostend hosted a major solo exhibition by the artist in 2015. In 2016, Dujourie was awarded the Flemish Culture Prize for Visual Arts. Her work features in numerous private and public collections worldwide, including Castello di Rivoli, Torino; Generali Foundation Collection, Salzburg; La Caixa Foundation Collection of Contemporary Art, Barcelona; M HKA, Antwerp; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid; and S.M.A.K., Ghent.
Jan Mot is honored to announce the representation of Lili Dujourie, whose pioneering work is based on conjunctions of forms, materials and subjects. From her key early sculpture Amerikaans Imperialisme and her video and photographic work from the 1970s, to her sculptures in the 1980s and 1990s, to her more recent paper-based works, the dominant aesthetic codes of the time find themselves recast as rhythm, ellipsis and ambivalence. As Dujourie has said, "I want to indicate the duplicity (visible/invisible, present/absent) in its totality and make it experienceable." This search for what lies at the same time above and below the threshold of experience continues to drive her practice, as evidenced by Mimesis, the monumental bronze sculpture commissioned in 2022 by the City of Antwerp for the Royal Museum of Fine Arts. A solo exhibition by Dujourie will open at Jan Mot on September 7. Works by the artist will feature in Jan Mot's booths at Art Basel (Basel, June 15-18) and Paris+ by Art Basel (Paris, October 20-22). (Photo: Rita Vereecke)
