Lena Henke

* 1982 in Warburg, Germany
Lives in Berlin, Germany and New York, USA

Lena Henke tests the conditions and possibilities of sculpture with technically innovative methods of production. At the same time, she expands the range of meaning of traditional sculpture by incorporating questions of femaleness and the production of power relations in urban space. The possibilities of plastic art and sculpture serve Henke as a basis for understanding the molding (and casting) of bodies as a changeable process of design. – Vivien Trommer

Henkes work has been exhibited at Whitney Museum of Art in New York, Kunstmuseum Luzern in Switzerland, Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, Museum of Contemporary Art in Detroit, Timisoara contemporary Biennale in Romania, Manifesta 11 in Zurich, The 9th Berlin Biennale in Germany, Le Biennale de MONTREAL in Canada among others. In 2019 she received the 8th RUBENSFÖRDERPREIS of the city of Siegen in Germany.
