Frieda Toranzo Jaeger.
Lesbische Liebe
Print



Frieda Toranzo Jaeger

Digital print of the work, Lesbiche Liebe [Lesbian Love], 2019.

Edition of 20

200cm x 250cm

Drawing inspiration from the Swiss artist and set designer H.R. Giger, Toranzo Jaeger depicts mechanical engines in many of her paintings. This work, which translates from German as “Lesbian Love,” attempts to hijack a space within traditional machinery to facilitate queer expression. Within the artist’s practice, engines characterize a capitalistic system of beliefs, behaviors, and conventions. Influenced by philosopher Byung-Chul Han, she states in relation to her interest in engines and propulsion: where “capitalism eliminates ‘the other,’ it aims to subordinate everything and everyone to a function of consumption. It does not simply move forward, its acceleration is increasing and it is losing a sense of direction.” Toranzo Jaeger’s embroidered interventions harken back to precolonial symbolic traditions, while also rendering the engine a decorative object, questioning ideas of functionality.
