Pauline Boudry / Renate Lorenz

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Pauline Boudry and Renate Lorenz are a Berlin artist duo who have been working together since 2006. You produce cinematic installations that quote and process historical material, a score, a piece of music, a film, a photograph or a performance. In their works they also reflect the critical history of photography and the moving image itself. In 2019 they will be exhibiting in the Swiss Pavilion at the 58th Venice Biennale .

life and work

The duo uses performance to create embodiments that allow different times to coincide and create illegitimate collaboration - partly fictional, partly cross-temporal. Her work To Valerie Solanas and Marilyn Monroe, In Recognition of their Desperation (2013) is based on the eponymous score by the feminist avant-garde composer Pauline Oliveros (1970), filmed at Funkhaus Nalepastraße, the former GDR Radio Studios in Berlin, with the participation of Musicians Rachel Aggs, Peaches , Catriona Shaw, Verity Susman , Ginger Brooks Takahashi, William Wheeler. The work had its premiere as part of the solo exhibition Patriarchal Poetry in the Badischer Kunstverein , Karlsruhe, in the fall of 2013 and was in the Museum of Modern Art shown, New York, in an event in the presence of Oliveros and Gregg Bordowitz in May 2014. In I Want stage she met punk writer Kathy Acker , artist Sharon Hayes, and transgender activist and prison abolitionist Chelsea Manning , who leaked information about the Iraq war through WikiLeaks in 2010 . All of the performers in their films are choreographers, dancers, artists and musicians, with whom Boudry / Lorenz had conversations for years about performance, the importance of visibility since the beginning of modernity, about the pathologization of bodies, but also about friendship, glamor and resistance . Recent solo exhibitions include Improvisation télépathique , at the Center Culturel Suisse, Paris, 2018; Everybody talks about the weather ... we don't at Participant Inc., New York, 2017; Loving, Repeating , Kunsthalle Wien , 2015; Portrait of an Eye , Kunsthalle Zürich , 2015; Aftershow , CAPC , Bordeaux, 2013; Toxic Play in Two Acts , South London Gallery, 2012; Contagieux!
