Claude Eigan strives to create oneiric settings and environments where all senses are heightened through their exhibitions. Influenced by contemporary poetry, the Berlin-based artist translates those strategies into a sculptural practice that triggers memory and enhances sensations. Altering scale and color, isolating or externalizing individual structures such as bones, intestines, or fluids, they look at the dysfunctional anatomy of our collective imaginary and explores the abject dimension of the body, as well as other areas of uncertainty and chaos. Recent exhibitions include A spoonful of Sugar at Komunuma in Paris (2020), Hear the Lizards Listening at Mélange, Köln (2019), Fest at La Placette, Lausanne (2018), A Strong Desire at PS120 Gallery (2018), Augmented Sunrise Beneath the Skin at Gr_und (2018) and Cloak of Mercy at HPFA in Berlin (2019).
