Böhler & Orendt

The installations and drawings from Böhler & Orendt address the aspiration of humans to categorize, transform, subdue, and overpower the work around them. Often in an absurd, exaggerated and humorous way, the artist duo examines contemporary concepts such as efficiency, flexibility, innovation and creativity. Through their comprehensive, intermedial use of drawing, set design, model making or performative techniques, the artists create a complex cluster of different installative stories in their works that function as three or four dimensional snapshots. Deriving from reality, situations, people and objects are enlarged, distorted, deformed and re-located in an often ironic context.
