Lothar Hempel,
Working Girl
@ Sies + Höke
— 

A romantic
notion of working
class liberation &
emancipation.
 

The exhibition

Taking its title 
from the 1988
movie
directed 
by Mike Nichols, 
Working Girl’
is Berlin-based
Hempel's first solo
with Sies + Höke
in Düsseldorf,
featuring 12 new 
works including
an assortment
of sculptures,
photographic
prints, paintings,
and mixed media. 

I think movies
are about setting
bodies in motion
in unusual ways.
In my sculptures
and paintings, the
bodies are freed
from their context
and stopped in
their movement.
” 

Lothar's
inspiration: 
Transporting the
idea of tireless
and vigorous
pursuit, even if
the outcome is
completely unclear.
