CHRISTIAN LEMMERZ
Den dansk/tyske kunstner Christian Lemmerz (f. 1959) har opnået den anerkendelse i kunstens verden, som de fleste kun kan drømme om. Hans kunst spænder over mange forskellige genre såsom tegning, skulptur og performance, men ofte med de samme dystre gennemgående temaer og eksistentielle betragtninger. Christian Lemmerz har udstillet verden over og modtaget flere medaljer, men alligevel kæmper kunstneren med selvværdet og spørgsmålet om hvorvidt hans værker rammer tilskueren eller bare står tomme uden indhold.

I dette portræt følger vi Lemmerz i den kunstneriske proces gennem udformningen af den 3,5 meter høje bronzestatue ’Lazarus’. Vi tager med Christian Lemmerz til den italienske kunstnerby, Pietra Santa, hvor han arbejder og lever, og hvor hans kreative evner får rum til at udfolde sig.

CHRISTIAN LEMMERZ
Christian Lemmerz has achieved wide recognition for his work with sculpturing, drawing and performance arts. His work often shares the same dark themes and recurring existentialistic questions. Lemmerz has achieved the kind of recognition that most artists can only dream of, having had exhibitions across the world and received several honorary recognitions. Still he struggles with his self-esteem and is constant questioning himself on whether his art serves a purpose to its spectators or not.

In this portrait film we follow Christian Lemmerz throughout the process of creating the 3,5m tall bronze statue ‘Lazarus’. The work takes place in Pietrasanta, Italy. The village is where Lemmerz’ artistic abilities unfolds and where he goes to ponder and build up energy for his next work.
