Henning Bohl’s paintings, collages and staged objects in this exhibition were made between 2003 and 2006. They constitute a body of work from the Berlinische Galerie collection and is now being shown for the first time in this form, conceived together with the artist.
Works by Henning Bohl rarely stand alone. They are usually clustered around a common theme to create arrangements. Literary snippets and extracts from artistic biographies are so inextricably combined with stylistic quotes and cited motifs that they are hard to disentangle. To this inexhaustible reservoir of existing forms Henning Bohl adds that minimal touch of his own, generating new, surprising elements and consciously defying any overhasty decoding or clear-cut attributions.
