Two chairs Lucas designed for gallery discussions at JEMA


Outside was a project Lucas created as part of her residency as guest artist of the 13th International Studio Program of the ACC Galerie, Weimar and the City of Weimar. Lucas has simultaneously worked in the JEMA space and in the Weimar public realm to realize Outside. Lucas states, “I wanted to employ the JEMA space to resonate as exhibition space, extending outward beyond its walls, and as a magnet tool, opening opportunity for dialogue with residents and tourists throughout Weimar... to facilitate the formation of a search party for the Outside.”

To date Lucas has not secured a lasting search party for the Outside but has engaged a multitude of discussants and participants in ongoing Outside projects in Weimar. Results from ongoing Outside dialogue is encouraging and fruitful but do not point to a decisive path to the Outside. Difficulties impeding the search stem from philosophical differences, funding, complacency, fear of the outside, confusion, lack of consensus, unseen boundaries, and possibly a problem with depth of field. Lucas is presently trying to secure funding to hire and enlist a paid Search Party in Weimar to bring the search to fruition.

Kristin Lucas is an internationally exhibiting multimedia artist utilizing video, installation, performance, and web-based projects. Lucas's works are represented by Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) and Postmasters Gallery in New York.
