Nina Braun is back: after her her move to Berlin and a baby-break, our long-time resident returns to heliumcowboy for a solo show this year. Representing Nina Braun since 2005 in three solo exhibitions in Hamburg as well as in shows in Barcelona, New York & Miami, we are happy to present her latest works, opening May 28.
Moving her focus even more towards sculpting over the past years, Nina has been working on large scale textile installations for the exhibition. The centerpiece is the big „Lovers Rock“, resembling a baboon cliff filled with humans. Aside from these larger pieces, Nina Braun will show three-dimensional wall-works as well as new watercolors.
In her usual meticulous way, Nina creates exceptionally elaborate works, that allow for easy access through their haptics and feel of surface alone. Not just the appealing materials, but also Nina‘s iconographic visual language, her humor and the assumedly cute characters populating the sculptures, are straightforward invitations for a discovery tour beneath those friendly surfaces. Here, in the depths of her work, one can explore Nina‘s main concerns, that can be found throughout her artistic output: social research and critique, psychodrama and tragedy, as well as the pleasures of life.
