Pauline Boudry / Renate Lorenz


In their works, Pauline Boudry and Renate Lorenz (live in Berlin) explore the ambivalences of visibility through precisely choreographed camera movements, spectators, and objects in space. Their artistic practice manifests itself in films, performances, songs, objects, and texts. They collaborate with dancers, choreographers, and visual artists with whom they share a long history of dealing with conditions of performance and violent hierarchies of bodies, but also of community, glamour, and resistance. In Wig Pieces, themes such as the sexualized and objectified body and the veiling of identities take on an abstract dimension, when artificial hair, which has been sewn onto felt and cut by a hairdresser, formally resembles a canvas. Recent exhibitions of the work by Boudry / Lorenz include at: Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (2020); Swiss Pavilion, Venice Biennale (2019); Centre culturel suisse, Paris (2018); Moscow Museum of Modern Art (2018); Participant Inc., New York (2017); Contemporary Arts Museum Houston (2017); Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven (2016); Biennale of Moving Images, Geneva (2016); Kunsthalle Zürich (2015); Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna (2015); Akademie der Künste Berlin (2015); CAFA Art Museum, Beijing (2014); Badischer Kunstverein, Karlsruhe (2013).
