Janaina Tschäpe

Janaina Tschäpe explores landscape as a site of morphological transformation. The natural world forms the stage in which abstract primordial scenes of longing, sex, and death play out, whether in painting, sculpture, photographs, or on the screen. Liquids, biomorphism, memory, hybridity, and the plasticity of subjectivity: these associations offer only a brief introduction into the artist‘s layered conceptual lexicon.

Janaina Tschäpe (b.1973, Munich) lives and works in New York City and Rio de Janeiro. Her work has been exhibited in prestigious international institutions, including Jeu de Paume, Paris; IMMA, Dublin; Rubin Museum, New York; Museu de Arte Moderna, Rio de Janeiro. Her work is held in distinguished collections such as the Centre Pompidou, Paris; National Gallery of Art, Washington; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary, Vienna; and the Inhotim Centro de Arte Contemporânea, Minas Gerais.
