The Act of LemoDada

Brightly shining above Akemi Takeya’s artistic world is the lemon. Under the title Lemonism, the artist has developed a series of works in this light since 2015. Here, with her new solo performed in Adam Pendleton’s exhibition Blackness, White, and Light, she transfers the Dadaism of the 1910s and 1920s as anti-bourgeois anti-war counterart into the 21st century: “The Act of LemoDada is an encounter with questions of today, a search of utopia and a dispute between body and lemon, original and copy, tragedy and comedy, nonsense and sense. But who wins the absurd battle “Lemo(n) vs. Dada” is secondary: There’s nothing to lose anyway!” (Takeya)
