Alexandra Bircken

Alexandra Bircken studied at Central Saint Martins, London, and worked as a fashion designer until 2003. She places the body’s skin and coverings at the heart of her sculptural practice, exploring the boundary between inside and outside. Soft and transparent materials such as wool, nylon, and hair are juxtaposed with the permanence and resistance of bronze and steel. Objects of power and pleasure like firearms and motorbikes are often used to symbolise humans’ relationship with machines and thus with themselves.

In 2021–2, Bircken had a major touring survey exhibition at Museum Brandhorst, Munich and Centre Régional d’Art Contemporain Occitanie, Sète. The show was accompanied by an extensive catalogue offering the first comprehensive academic overview of her work. Bircken also recently had an exhibition at KINDL, her first institutional solo show in Berlin, featuring a large-scale, site-specific installation.
