Pauline Boudry / Renate Lorenz

Pauline Boudry and Renate Lorenz have been working together in Berlin since 2007. They produce objects and installations that choreograph the tension between visibility and opacity. Their films are performance-based, including the camera and animated objects as additional performers, upsetting the separation between stage and backstage. Their most recent catalog is titled Stages (Spector Books, 2022). They showed their film installation Moving Backwards at the Swiss Pavillion at the 58th International Art Exhibition–La Biennale di Venezia (2019). Most recently they participated in the São Paulo Biennial (2023) with a trilogy of performance-based film installations and showed their immersive installation and performance Glass Is My Skin at the Palacio de Cristal / Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (2022/23). Other international exhibitions include Kunstnernes Hus, Oslo (2023/24); Tensta Konsthall, Stockholm (2023); Museo CA2M, Madrid (2022); Whitechapel Gallery, London (2022); Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven (2022); National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne (2022); Frac Bretagne, Rennes (2021); Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2021); Centre Pompidou, Paris (2021); Julia Stoschek Collection, Berlin (2019); New Museum, New York (2018); and Gwangju Biennale (2016).
