"For two years, Kris Lemsalu has worked with her husband Kyp Malone, the musician and artist. Malone created the soundtrack for a joint exhibition of theirs at KW in Berlin. At the beginning of the artistic maze, a large boat in the shape of a swan floats upon a blue tarp, awaiting the spectator. More hybrid animals and creatures follow. On the occasion of this exhibition, Lemsalu told Deutschlandfunk Radio: „I am processing the various phases of our relationship and playing with different myths surrounding the creation of this world.“ The swan is a symbol of fertility as well as monogamous fidelity. The jaguar and hare represent ego, or alter egos, of the two artists. Other works negotiate gender politics and practice social criticism."–Tobi Mauss
