work, Petra Morenzi (1954, Heilbronn) challenges us to believe
what we are seeing. Her sculptural and drawing work is based entirely
around ‘standard’ human figures that are far from being ‘normal’, to be
in their presence is to feel that you came in at a point of
mid-adoption, as if the figures have been given the task of managing and
contemplating the physical forms they find themselves in.
Morenzi studied at the Rietveldacademie and at the Rijksakademie voor
Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam.
exhibited her work at AKINCI, Amsterdam (2009),
Art Rotterdam (2009), Arco Madrid (2008). Morenzi’s work is to be found
in various collections, including Caldic Collection, Wassenaar, Teylers
Museum, Haarlem, Sammlung der Deutschen Bank Frankfurt, ABN Amro
Collection and Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.
