About the artist:
David Lieske (1979, Hamburg) is an artist, musician, music producer living between London and Berlin. He co-founded Label Dial Records in 1999 and DJs under the pseudonym Carsten Jost. He created and directed the Mathew gallery in Berlin, then in New York from 2012 to 2018. He also co-created the fashion magazine 299 792 458 m/s. A well-known tennis fan, he created the DL-COURTWEAR tennis clothing line. David Lieske uses his multiple identities to enrich his work and deliver in his installations a reflection on the image and the role of the artist in the materialization of intellectual concepts in an economic context where art and business maintain dangerous links. By leading different careers, David Lieske brilliantly blurs the tracks of the so-called fixed identity of the artist and raises questions of a cultural, economic, social, conceptual and political order.
The tennis tournament for the 30th anniversary of the CAC – la synagogue de Delme is organized in partnership, and with the kind authorization of the Tennis Club of Delme.
