Lara Schnitger works with fabric. A room is covered in fabric, and abstract shapes are formed. Flowery or checkered figures challenge one another in works that are at once humorous, erotic, and political. From a visual point of view, the works remind one of clothes as much as architecture. As exhibition curator Richard Julin states:”Schnitger is a vital part of a young flourishing art scene in L.A. that is very active and multi faceted. Her sculptures and installations combine a feeling of the metropolis with that of home-made craft.”

Schnitger piles impressions onto each other. In her work places and events fuse together to form new meanings. The work Gridlock is based on Japanese construction sites, Tibetan prayer flags, and the election movement in the US. Schnitger who has traveled extensively and lived in the Netherlands, the US, and Japan, among other countries is interested in different cultures and the clashes that can result.
My Other Car is a Broom is the first presentation of Schnitger in Sweden. She was born in the Netherlands, 1969, but resides in Los Angeles. Lara Schnitger has exhibited in venues across Europe, the US, and Asia, including Kunst-Werke, Berlin, 2000; Statement, Basel Art Fair, 2001; and P.S.1, New York, 2002. She has received grants from the Mondriaan Foundation and the Pollock-Krasner Foundation. Her work is currently on view at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles in an exhibition that includes works by several of Los Angeles’s upcoming artists.

A catalogue containing a conversation between Lara Schnitger and curator Richard Julin accompanies the exhibition.
