This event has ended.

MARC STRAUS presents an exhibition of new work by German artist, Birgit Brenner. This is the artist’s second solo show with the gallery and will inaugurate our fall season.

Birgit Brenner creates her works out of the dramas of everyday life, and this is mimicked in her use of common materials. Mediums like wood, cardboard, and acrylic paint are combined like a modern-day assemblage, blurring the line between painting, sculpture, and drawing.

For this exhibition, Brenner has created a body of work developed around a narrative from dreams, perhaps, fraught with the tensions of possible failures in relationships and with societal norms. These then translate into wonderfully idiosyncratic rich works that are visually laced with a sense of irony and humor.

Birgit Brenner (b. 1964) studied at Hochschule der Künste, Berlin under renowned installation artist and film director Rebecca Horn. She is a Professor of Art at the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Stuttgart, and her work has been shown extensively in Europe, including a 2011 major exhibit at the Dortmunder Kunstverein in Germany. She has recently had solo exhibitions at Kunsthalle Tübingen, Germany; Kunstsammlung Jena, Germany; and Dortmunder Kunstverein, Germany. She was a recipient of the Tisa of the Schulenburg-Stiftung art award in 2004, Christian Karl Schmidt subsidy award in 2003, and a P.S.1 scholarship from 2001-2002. She lives and works in Berlin. She is represented by Eigen+Art Berlin and Leipzig since 1992 and MARC STRAUS in New York.
