Martina von Meyenburg

The (hi)stories of found objects and materials form the basis of von Meyenburg’s sculptural investigations. As a collector and curator of “traces”, the visceral and associative evidence of the previous lives of things, she is interested in how particular material combinations and modes of display can alter our relationship to the “data” presented. In her work, which comprises various media such as sculptures, installations, works on paper, and photography, the artist pushes the playfully surreal and instinctive aspects of her creations.
