Lena Marie Emrich born 1991 Göttingen, lives and works in Berlin

In her work, Lena Marie Emrich focuses on the marginal and the social - both topics that are key elements in her artistic practice. Car tuning races, abandoned airports, arenas, hip-hop videos – all these are cultural references that nourish her multidisciplinary practice. Emrich interweaves performance, documentation and sculpture and sheds light on the characteristics of these unique communities. Her works tell of the encounter between supposedly rigid everyday objects and human longings, and conserve them in a simple formal language.
