The human body and the various shells that, as skin and attire, define its relation to the world are key motifs in Alexandra Bircken’s work. Many of her sculptural investigations probe the question of the boundary between inside and outside and its relatedness as a permeable membrane, interface, and suture.

For her exhibition Unruhe [Unrest], Bircken has developed numerous new works that interweave themes such as gender, body and machine, power and vulnerability.
