“Jenny Michel makes the invisible visible, revealing the beauty that can be found at the interfaces between science, technology and art. Taking cartography, history, utopias and legends as her artistic material, she calls into question common conceptions about time, space and progress in the manner of a sensitive and analytical researcher – transparently diagnosing our thought-littered digital present. The artist also recognizes, however, the potential of the historically unique position we find ourselves in: standing on the pile of history’s debris, we have seemingly constant and instant access to a complex architecture of knowledge and discarded knowledge. Even if this architecture takes on the form of ruins, fragments and dust in her work, every tiny part of Jenny Michel’s multilayered collages, drawings and sculptures contains information. Her work forms a cabinet of curiosities of human thought.” (Gallery FELDBUSCHWIESNER)
