“Fair Game,” an exhibition by Alexandra Bircken at Kindl, Berlin

A central theme in Bircken’s oeuvre is the shell. She examines skin, clothing, containers, and architecture in relation to their interior: organs, bones, and invisible functions. The artist creates sculptures and assemblages from diverse materials in which she explores the relationships between space, body, and shell, exposing the interior and examining our notions of corporeality, machines, and human beings.

Bircken’s latest installation opens up diverse reference spaces ranging from hunting scenarios to battle paintings, and from political violence to laboratories and clubs, activating a wide variety of associations in visitors.

On view now until 15 May 2022 at KINDL – Centre for Contemporary Art

Am Sudhaus 3, Berlin
