TENT will be celebrating the reopening of its exhibition space by presenting "The Opaque Palace," a solo exhibition by German sculptor Anne Wenzel

About "The Opaque Palace"

Based in the Netherlands since 1992, Anne Wenzel has created a body of work centred around the themes of power, destruction, heroism and history. 

Using sculpture as her medium, Wenzel's work evokes a profound sense of conflict. Her sculptures are physically beautiful, but retain an inevitable sense of decay that elicit feelings of temporality. Wenzel's oeuvre is often inspired by historical sources, literature and contemporary images of disaster or acts of tragedy. 

These influences, combined with experimental sculpting techniques including extreme size, blended substances and radical distortion, make the work of Wenzel as unsettling as they are aesthetically pleasing. 

Guest curated by Daria de Beauvais, "The Opaque Palace" contains works selected to highlight Wenzel's engagement with existential themes and her cutting-edge use of sculpture.
