DANIEL WENK | Recent Tapings
April 28 - June 9, 2017
Opening Reception: Friday, April 28th, 6-9pm
Daniel Wenk’s exhibition Recent Tapings will be featured in the gallery’s Project Space. Working exclusively with adhesive tape since 1986, Wenk utilizes the natural characteristics of his chosen material to explore concepts of transience, improvisation, durability and wear. His minimalist compositions, incorporating serial processes of layering and repetition, are firmly located on the border between drawing and sculpture. The works presented in this exhibition are made of tape on aluminum composite panel and were completed in 2017.
Born in 1962 in Tubingen, Germany, Daniel Wenk studied sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart. His works are in private and public collections including F.E. Staatsgalerie (Stuttgart), Pinkakothek Der Moderne (Munich) and Daimler Contemporary (Berlin). From 1989 onwards Wenk has had extensive stays in New York, Chicago, Moscow, Paris and San Paolo. He currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
