Renata Lucas (* 1971 in Ribeirão Preto) is a Brazilian installation and conceptual artist who lives and works in São Paulo. In the presentation short cut, her solo exhibition at Galerie neugerriemschneider (April 28 - May 27) in Berlin-MItte, Lucas builds on competing notions of contemplative, intangible interaction and its quantifiable evaluation, inviting viewers to actively participate in a coin-operated installation that rethinks the conditions of attention and the processes of interpretation. Her works, often found at busy intersections, on sidewalks, or in urban landscapes, address both hyperlocal and global histories to provide new approaches to interpreting once familiar environments.
MK Kaehne (b. 1963 Vilnius/Lithuania) is a German-Russian sculptor who lives and works in Berlin. In addition to his infamous, functional suitcase sculptures, the exhibition MUTTER features new sculptures, life-size and hyper-realistically rendered humans - a female nude as well as a bust of a boy - in the artist's signature aesthetic. Kaehne, who grew up in Moscow and Berlin and began his artistic career after studying at the Kunsthochschule Weißensee (1983-88) during the fall of communism, is influenced by Russian Constructivism. His work is strongly analytical, examining the appropriation of reality in sculptural technique. In doing so, he takes up biographical, political and Dadaist elements - but the results are ironic.
