Produced on the occasion of Jac Leirner being awarded the Wolfgang Hahn Preis 2019 at the Museum Ludwig, Köln.

Leirner cre­ates in­s­tal­la­tions, col­lages, and sculp­tures using found, of­ten in­dus­trial­ly man­u­fac­tured ev­ery­day ob­jects, ac­cord­ing to the prin­ci­ples of col­lect­ing, ac­cu­mu­lat­ing, and clas­si­fy­ing play an im­por­tant role in her work. This re­sults in dense, of­ten min­i­mal­ist works that play with the aes­thet­ic, rep­re­sen­ta­tio­n­al, and so­cio-cul­tu­r­al lev­els of mean­ing of the ob­jects.
