Sabine Dehnel (* 1971 in Ludwigshafen am Rhein) lives and works in Berlin. She combines painting with staged photography and abstraction with objectivity. In 2013 the catalog Sabine Dehnel was published. Reframing by Hatje Cantz Verlag. Three aspects that fascinate us about the artist’s work:
Sabine Dehnel combines painting with staged photography and thereby creates something new, previously unknown. Through the cross-media technique she combines the imaginative moment of painting with the authentic documentation of photography.
In her current series Mona, Sabine Dehnel refers to the long tradition of portraits in painting as well as in photography, because the staging of persons hardly differed from one another at first. The protagonists were decorated with the most precious accessories and clothes. Dehnel takes up this aspect by associating her subjects with elaborate hand-crafted clothing. However, she deliberately renounces the representation of the face of women and thus creates a mysterious aura.
Sabine Dehnel reflects the auratic appearance in a devotion of icons set in amulets, while referring to post-mortem photography, which in the 19th century was an important part of the cult of the dead and the memory of a dear deceased. The resulting absence of the depicted in the photography, which makes up their magic, is equally reflected in the impressive rotating sculptures of the artist. As a result, black swan Linda, made in a complex process of black nylon stockings and wire, acts as a commemorative sculpture and portrait in devotion to a deceased lady. As in the series Mona, Sabine Dehnel does not allow a recognizable image in her sculptures and creates a romantic, soulful memory of a loved one.
