Franziska Reinbothe

Franziska Reinbothe * 1980 in Berlin, DE, lives and works in Berlin and Leipzig, DE. In painting, she is interested in what usually remains hidden: the back of a picture and its edges. To make them visible, she compresses canvases, exposes stretcher frames again, or does without them altogether. She stretches, folds, breaks, cuts through and/or sews her paintings after the painting process is complete. Some of them then project far into the room, others have already completely detached themselves from the wall. But it is always about contemporary painting, its means and possibilities. Franziska Reinbothe does not work project-based, but continuously in the process. In doing so, she trusts in the making, instead of making constricting decisions in advance.
