Vivian Greven’s drawings play on the opposition between representation and abstraction. Her work evoke bodily structures, dualism and human existence in a dynamic, clear and pure manner. Through a methodical development, done by adding and subtracting parts of the final result, Greven takes us back to our touch instinct, where negative space contributes as abstract meets sensual. What is presented is not the passive bodies of classical sculpture, but active, androgynous figures in sensory union.
Greven has an education in fine art from Kunstakademie Düsseldorf/ Meisterschülerin and in English Studies from Bergische Universität Wuppertal in Germany. Selected solo- and group exhibitions include: Insane in the Membrane, Sammlung Philara, Düsseldorf. A m o r e, Aurel Scheibler, Berlin. Ekstase, Kunstmuseum Stuttgard. GRAZIA, Aurel Scheibler, Berlin. Eyes Wide Shut, STRABAG Kunstforum, Vienna.
