In her work, Petra Morenzi challenges us to believe what we are seeing. Her sculptural work and work on paper is based entirely around the ‘standard’ human figure that is far from being ‘normal.’ In their presence, the viewer gets the feeling that the figures have been given the task of managing and reflecting the physical form in which they are located.
Petra Morenzi (1954, Heilbronn, Germany, lives in The Netherlands) studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie and at the Rijksakademie voor Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam. She has exhibited several times her work at AKINCI, Amsterdam, as well as in national and international institutional exhibitions. Morenzi’s work has been acquired by various collections, including Akzo Nobel; Collection Museum Voorlinden; Teylers Museum, Haarlem; Collection Deutsche Bank, Frankfurt; ABN Amro Collection and Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.
