Artist Isa Genzken assembles various found materials, with which she is creating sculptures and installations. The artist’s interest in the combination of materials, in surfaces and superficialities becomes apparent in colourful, bizarre or conceptual works in different media. Isa Genzken is one of today’s most renown female artists whose work meanders between severity and eccentric.
Isa Genzken’s image which was presented in the central arena of the Moscow Biennial is a still, extracted from her film “Die kleine Bushaltestelle (Gerüstbau)” (2012) and shows two prostitutes, played by Genzken and artist Kai Althoff. Their conversation about love, acceptance and rejection is one of several episodes in the video where the two change characters and appear in various identities and situations. The film was screened during the bienniale.
