No Day without a Line

Based on an idea by Gaby Hartel

13 February – 19 March 2016

Satellite Berlin

Liliane Lijn shares her practice, influences and observations participating in the group show NULLA DIES SINE LINEA at Satellite Berlin.

“NULLA DIES SINE LINEA is conceived as an open-ended exhibition that examines the idea of the ‘practiced mind’ as a path to inspiration. “No day without a line [drawn]“ is a saying attributed by Pliny the Elder to the ancient Greek painter Apelles, who was famously diligent in practicing his art every day. In this spirit, our show aims to examine the habits and practices used by agile thinkers to stay connected, or ‘in line,’ with the sublime. If this ‘line’ represents a kind of key to the creative self, questions arise: What state of mind is necessary to come up with an idea for an artwork, a musical composition, the next sentence or verse, or a new theory? How does one access it on a regular basis? Most importantly, what role does daily routine play?”
