Pat Lemos (Spain, 1982) and Lukas Lehmann (Germany, 1986) are visual artists with a BA in Fine Arts from the Polytechnic University of Valencia and the Kunsthochschule Burg Giebichenstein of Halle/Salle, respectively; creators and members of the artistic duo LEMOS + LEHMANN, active since 2014.
Nowadays, they live between Spain and Iceland looking for a balance across golden, blue skies and Northern energy; across different ways of transiting the world. Using analog photography, as the main tool, they explore the concepts of body, environment and time. A triad in which they get immersed through their relationship and the relation established with the places they visit or inhabit.
They start to consolidate their work participating in artists residencies, art festivals and various individual and group exhibitions. Their instants appear in reference online magazines such as IGNANT, ETC ZINE or MINUS37. Art collection MICA (Spain) hosts some of their pieces. After the solo show The Light Behind in Lokal-Int Gallery (Biel, Switzerland) and their current collective show Trees Outside the Academy in CAAA (Guimarães, Portugal), they prepare the upcoming season with exhibitions in Spain, Portugal and Iceland.
About ‘One and All’:
One and All is an open project, hundreds of images and sensations that Lemos + Lehmann have created over the last few years. The duo photographs as an intrinsic part of their daily life thus the great set of the snapshots is configured as fragments of life that constantly communicate with each other. Independently of time and place, their pictures conform to an atmosphere of silence and contemplation.
Lemos + Lehmann’s gaze is raw but layered with subtleties, formally moving from the figurative to the most abstract, emotionally and conceptually from the natural to the mystical, and the supernatural.
One and All is an incursion into the perception of the unity and interrelation of all things, a permanent exaltation of multiplicity.
