Lena Henke

March 22 – May 17, 2014

GEBURT UND FAMILIE will include artworks and a publication organized around Henke’s conceit of a sculpture becoming pregnant, and will be continued with a forthcoming exhibition at Skulpturenmuseum Glaskasten Marl, Germany.
 
Lena Henke has held solo exhibitions with Real Fine Arts, New York; Neuer Aachener Kunstverein, Aachen; Galerie Parisa Kind, Frankfurt am Main; Kunstverein Oldenburg, Oldenburg; and 1857, Oslo. She has participated in group exhibitions held with Greene Naftali, New York; Pro Choice, Vienna; and the Glasgow International, Glasgow. Together with artist Marie Karlberg, Henke co-founded the itinerant curatorial project M/L Artspace, which has mounted exhibitions in such locations as a nail salon and a parking lot under the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway. Henke completed her MFA dually at at the Städelschule, Frankfurt am Main and the Glasgow School of Art, Glasgow. She lives and works in New York.
 
The exhibition is accompanied by a text written by Stephanie Seidel.
 
Lena Henke: GEBURT UND FAMILIE has been generously underwritten by James C. Jamieson III.
 
This exhibition was supported by the Foundation for Contemporary Arts and the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
