Artist Statement:
Lena Mai Merle is a cross-media artist occupied with the depiction of imprints. She illustrates the structures and interdependent interferences of identity constructs, group relations, roles and the production of the "other" in historiography, autobiography and narration with an imagery in which objects and figures act on an equal footing, which allows them to act beyond their attributions. As in a maze, a mesh of associations of text and images of various origins proliferates in her pictures. In order to escape from them, the observer must reinterpret and rethink. Hence, Lena Mai Merle invites observers to reflect on ways of seeing, interpreting or even reading. As part of various collectives, she continues to explore the efforts of group work and possibilities of authorship.
