"The works of Henning Bohl (b. 1975, lives and works in Berlin, after studying at the Städelschule, Frankfurt am Main, under Thomas Bayrle and Michael
Krebber) refer to one another, to what the artist himself does as well as to other (tendencies in) art. Bohl, that is to say, aims both at a narrative register and at how a story is told. The book presents his new installations, which are pared down to the essential. Large-format canvases, for instance, onto which the artist has collaged figures cut from paper, are mounted on plasterboard elements; the latter are in turn arranged in stacks on wooden trestles, constituting a hybrid between sculpture and architecture. This idiosyncratic mise-en-scène renders the status of Bohl’s works relative: the pictures become props; their supports, conversely, are imbued with a sculptural and conceptual value of their own. With an essay by Manfred Hermes, a freelance writer who has published
widely on art and film in catalogues, newspapers, and journals. "
