Adrian Ghenie Biography

Ever since his first solo exhi­bi­tion in 2006, Adrian Ghenie – born in Roma­nia in 1977, and also raised there – has gar­nered atten­tion and excite­ment with his highly unconven­tional com­po­si­tions and stu­pendous technique. Like a mas­ter sto­ry­teller, he confi­dently guides us through images both fig­u­ra­tive and abs­tract, in order to allow us to catch a glimpse of his interpreta­tion of history. Ghenie’s grand themes are power and its abuses, as well as forced exile and migra­tion, which he weaves into sug­ges­tive imag­inar­ies by borrow­ing boldly from the history of both art and cin­ema.

Above and beyond his gallery exhi­bi­tions in Eng­land, Ger­many, Belgium, France, Switzer­land and the United States, a number of muse­ums have already ded­icated ret­ro­spec­tive exhi­bi­tions to the young artist. A show at the National Museum for Con­tem­po­rary Art in Bucharest in late 2009 will be fol­lowed, in 2010, by the S.M.A.K. in Ghent. In summer 2009, Hatje Kantz pub­lished a first mono­graph, while the art mag­a­zine “FlashArt” pub­lished a widely noticed cover story on him in Novem­ber 2009. A pub­lica­tion on his works on paper is forth­coming.
