Asta Gröting

Lives and works in Berlin

Asta Gröting creates works that translate psychological and social relations into physical forms. She produces a lexicon of video and sculpture to draw our attention to absence and the physical and emotional gaps between people, animals, facades, and other things.

She is a professor at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste Braunschweig. Gröting had international solo exhibitions like Centre Pasquart in Biel/Bienne, KINDL –  Centre for Contemporary Art, Berlin;  ZKM Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologien, Karlsruhe; n.b.k., Berlin; Lentos Kunstmuseum Linz; Henry Moore Institute, Leeds; and MARTa Herford. She has participated in numerous large-scale international exhibitions, including Musée des Beaux-Arts, Paris; James-Simon-Galerie; Staatliche Museen zu Berlin; Kunsthalle Bielefeld; 22nd São Paulo Biennial; the 8th and 14th Biennale of Sydney, and the 44th Venice Biennale.
