Since the beginning of her career, the artist has been concerned with the medium of painting (for example, in her spray paintings) as a political, socially relevant entity.
Anne-Lise Coste (*1973 in Marignane near Marseille, lives and works in Sète, among other places) has been working with the medium of painting since the beginning of her artistic career (e.g. in her spray paintings as a political, socially relevant entity. By using text/language, colors and lines on classic canvases or on used, discarded, leftover materials (plastic bags, packaging, pieces of wood, plexiglass, tires or textiles), painting is a medium for the artist to give these objects an active force and a new reading.
In her comprehensive exhibition for Kunsthaus Baselland, Coste focuses on central questions of her work and takes a close look at our society today with all its fractures and double standards. At the same time, she explores the possibilities of stepping out of any constraints and thereby achieving a new freedom.
