Henrik Jacob

Henrik Jacob kneads black and white modelling clay over photos, allowing the motifs to grow into the space. The size of his thumbprint determines the pixel size, which lends the images an unsettling blurriness. Through the changeability of the mouldable, plastic material, the artist works on a kind of anti-art history that questions the meaning of the artistic end product.

Henrik Jacob, born 1972 in Dresden, studied fine art at the University of the Arts Bremen under Prof Rolf Thiele from 1994 to 2000. After spending time abroad at the Winchester School of Art in England, in Barcelona, Spain, and at the Academie Galan in France, he attended the master class of Rolf Thiele at the HfK Bremen in 2001. He has lived and worked in Berlin since 2000, where he has organised and curated the exhibition and project space Kulturpalast Wedding International since 2007. In 2016, the project space was honoured by the Berlin Senate with the award for artistic project spaces and initiatives.

His works have been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Germany and abroad and are represented in various collections.
