Research Process: Falke Pisano (2020)

The artist taking part in Index Research Process program during 2020 is Falke Pisano.

The artistic practice of Falke Pisano (b. 1978, Netherlands) scrutinizes the ways in which systems of thought are structured, formalized, and ultimately naturalized. Her series of works stem from long-term research cycles that delve deep into specific subject matters and undermine conventional frameworks of knowledge by triggering a continuous exchange between language, ideas, materials, and forms.

Pisano has exhibited internationally, including solo presentations at Centre Pompidou, Metz (2019), Ellen de Bruijne Projects, Amsterdam (2019); Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo, Cordoba, Spain (2016); Badischr Kunstverein, Karlsruhe, Germany (2016); REDCAT, Los Angeles (2015); Praxes, Berlin (2014) ar/ge kunst, Bolzano, Italy (2014); The Showroom, London (2013); Grazer Kunstverein (with Benoît Maire; 2009). She performed at Museo Reina Sofia, Madrid (2012) and has participated in numerous significant group exhibitions: Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2018, 2012, 2011, 2006); 20th Biennale of Sydney (2016); Istanbul Biennial (2013); Shanghai Biennale (2012); Tensta Konsthall, Stockholm (2012); MACBA, Barcelona (2009); Yokohama Triennale (2008); Manifesta 7, Italy (2008); 5th Berlin Biennale (2008); and Kunsthalle Basel (2008).
