Cajsa von Zeipel
Full CV (PDF)
Cajsa von Zeipel delves into identity, gender and queerness while interrogating ideals of classicism through sculpture. Culling from sci-fi and fantasy aesthetics, she constructs her figures in brightly colored silicone and adorns them with dollar store accouterment turned glistening treasure. In a resolute assertion of femme visibility and sex-positive provocation, these beings celebrate a world of their own creation.
Recent exhibitions include those at Andrehn-Schiptjenko, Paris; the Rubell Museum in Washington DC and Miami; the Museum of Sex, New York; Arken Museum, Ishøj; CF Hill, Stockholm; the Athens Biennale, Greece; Copenhagen Contemporary, Copenhagen; Kunsthalle Düsseldorf, Germany; Company Gallery, New York; Andrehn-Schiptjenko, Stockholm; Karma International, Zurich; Konstmuseum, Kristinhamn and Arcadia Missa, London. Her work is in numerous public and private collections such as the Onassis Foundation, Rubell Foundation, Museum of Modern Art Warsaw, Faurschou Collection, 21C Museum, Modern Museet, Borås Museum of Arts, Tank Shanghai, Foundation Mallorca, and the Eskilstuna Museum of Art.
