Trained as an acrobat since the age of six, German artist Wenzel confronts the visitor with partly surreal and partly dynamic studies of the human body. The show cropped sections of a performance created especially for the camera. She embraces the thrill of a 10-second self-timer to jump into the frame and defies gravity.

Wenzel received several grants like the European Photo Exhibition Award from the Körber-Stiftung Hamburg in 2011, the Mondriaan Fonds in 2013 and from the Kunstfonds Nordrhein Westfalen in 2106 amongst others. Her work has been widely exhibited in national and international solo and group shows.
