Pauline Boudry and Renate Lorenz

Pauline Boudry and Renate Lorenz have been working together in Berlin since 2007. They produce installations that choreograph the tension between visibility and opacity. 

Their films capture performances in front of the camera, often starting with a song, a picture, a film or a score from the near past. They upset normative historical narratives and conventions of spectatorship, as figures and actions across time are staged, layered and re-imagined. Their performers are choreographers, artists and musicians, with whom they are having a long-term conversation about the conditions of performance, the violent history of visibility, the pathologization of bodies, but also about companionship, glamour and resistance. Their sculptures and objects often refer to the potentiality of performance, using materials that connect to props, stages, costumes, microphones, wigs or dance floors. 

Recently, they have shown their work at the Crystal Palace - Museo Reina Sofia Madrid, Whitechapel Gallery, London, Hammer Museum Los Angeles, Seoul Museum of Art, Centre Pompidou Paris. Recent solo exhibitions include CA2M Madrid, 2022, Kunstraum Innsbruck, (2021), Frac Rennes (2021), NBK Berlin (2020), Swiss Pavillon, 58th Biennale di Venezia (2019), Julia Stoschek Collection Berlin (2019).
