For more than 30 years Isa Genzken (b. 1948 in Bad Oldesloe) has created a varied sculptural œuvre which incorporates clear references to Modernist positions in architecture and design. She selescts the materials she uses with care and precision - wood, plaster, translucent epoxy resin, concrete. Her fragile and at the same time monumental constructions, whose formal and concetual stringency is broken by a pronounced reciprocal relationship with their environment, subtly reflect the fragility of existence. Isa Genzken was awarded the Wolfgang-Hahn-Prize in 2002 for her complex œuvre. She has been represented with her works at documenta (1992, 2002) and she occupied the German pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2007.
