Lemm&Barkey is the name taken by the artistic duo Lot Lemm and Grace Ellen Barkey. They have created a number of museum installations that have been exhibited at BOZAR (Brussels), the Benaki Museum (Athens), the Musée des Arts Décoratifs (Paris), Dr. Guislain Museum (Ghent) and the Triennale for Art, Fashion and Design (Hasselt). Their film The Porcelain Project | Installation was selected for the Festival International du Film sur l’argile et le verre (FIFAV) in Montpellier.
Their collaboration also extends into the stage productions of Grace Ellen Barkey & Needcompany. Barkey, who set up Needcompany together with Jan Lauwers in 1986, is, as a visual artist, choreographer and performer, a full-time member of this pioneering ensemble, which has presented itself as an artists’ company since the 1980s. Since 1992 Barkey has been making her own productions within Needcompany. Her work is set on the boundary between theatre, dance, performance and art. Lot Lemm has been a member of Needcompany, as artist, stage designer and costume designer, since 1993.
In its turn, Lemm&Barkey's work is an invitation to perform a poetic, extremely delicate pirouette-à-deux. - (H)ART
