NEW YORK, NY.- Marc Straus announces an exhibition of new works by German artist Birgit Brenner. This is the artist's first solo exhibition in the US and inaugurates the gallery's new space at 299 Grand Street (between Allen and Eldridge).

For this, her first solo show in the U.S., Brenner has expanded her visual language with works not easily classified as painting, sculpture, or drawing. While structurally mining some Beuysian territory, Brenner's work is highly personal, concerned with social issues as loneliness, isolation, and aging. Some works evolve almost cinematically based on stories written by the artist.

Humans experience difficult contradictions and are buffeted by uncertainities and fears. We make do, we rationalize, but always the remnants have resonance; sometimes we are crippled and undone. Just knowing there is never certainty except mortality is a constant whisper.

Birgit Brenner is a fearless excavator of the psyche, ultimately no doubt her own, but still her works have humor and irony. Living Life means there is always something wonderful and hopeful and it is worth taking risks.

Birgit Brenner, b. 1964 and lives and works in Berlin. She is a renowned Professor of Art at the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Stuttgart and has been represented by Eigen + Art, in Berlin and Leipzig since 1992. Her work has been shown extensively in Europe including a 2011 major exhibit at the Dortmunder Kunstverein in Germany. She was recipient for the Prices Kunstpreis Tisa von der Schulenburg-Stiftung in 2004, Christian Karl Schmidt Förderpreis für zeitgenössische Kunst in 2003 and PS1 in New York. Other solo exhibitions include: Galerie Eigen + Art, Leipzig (2010). Haus am Lützowplatz, Berlin (2009). Galerie Eigen + Art, Berlin (2007). Selected group exhibitions include: Galerie Erlangen (2010), Kunsthalle Mannheim (2010), Temporare Kunsthalle, Berlin (2009), Beurs van Berlage, Amsterdam, The Netherlands (2009).
