The first comprehensive publication on Lena Inken Schaefer’s (* 1982; lives and works in Berlin) practice The days are long, the nights are cold presents the collection of artist’s works dating from 2007. Here we observe Schaefer’s objects, installations and actions emanate with mystery from associative contexts. Be it through the ornaments derived from the devalued Deutsche Mark-banknotes of 1922 or through St. John’s wort-stained pyjamas, the works of Schaefer reveal new possibilities for the patterns to emerge. The artist takes the patterns through the process of continuous dissemblance, use and misuse that enrich them with fresh analogies.

with texts by Jan Brandt, Roman Ehrlich, Hanna Lemke, Nils Markwardt and Dominikus Müller
