TAMARA HENDERSON

SEASONS END: OUT OF BODY

NOVEMBER, 17 2018 - FEBRUARY 24, 2019

OPENING: FRIDAY, NOVEMBER, 16, 7 PM

Different media and forms of expression – such as photography, painting, sculpture, film or performance – come together in the work of Tamara Henderson. Her current film, »Seasons End: Out of Body« (2018), conveys this many-sided artistic praxis. It documents and extends Henderson’s installation, »Seasons End«, which has been constantly developing itself in exhibitions, performances and journeys to many places around the world since 2015. The process of artistic creation emerges in imagery, sound and movement. Henderson assembles remarkable costumes and idiosyncratic characters, but also everyday objects, into a particular choreography on 16mm film, into a poetic narrative about a world beyond the human body.

Tamara Henderson, born 1982 in Sackville, New Brunswick (CA), had numerous solo shows in recent years, amongst others at the Kunst-Werke Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, at the Douglas Hyde Gallery in Dublin (IE, both 2018), at the Rodeo Gallery in London (GB, 2017), at the Tate Liverpool (GB), at the Red Cat, Los Angeles (US, both 2016) and at the Grazer Kunstverein (AT, 2014). The artist was also represented through many group shows, among others at the Biennale de l'Image en Mouvement at the Centre d'Art Contemporain Genève (CH), the Rupert in Vilnius (LT, both 2018), the Vancouver Art Gallery (CA), the Moderna Museet in Stockholm (SE, both 2016), and the dOCUMENTA (13) in Kassel (2012).
