Simon Denny

°1982, Auckland (NZ) – lives and works in Berlin (DE)

The work of Simon Denny is situated between spatial exploration and a careful examination of display, whereby he reflects on media production, distribution, and consumption. In his often fragile and seemingly haphazard installations, employing a wide variety of materials, the distinctions between “real” and “virtual” spaces collapse on the surface of such interfaces. Denny takes on popular entertainment and consumer cultures, creating aquarium-like sculptures, which quote in an ironic-melancholic way the former status object of the television set as an item of furniture and living room altar.

Simon Denny has had numerous solo exhibitions, including shows at MoMA PS1, New York; MUMOK, Vienna; Contemporary Art Museum, St. Louis; and Serpentine Galleries, London. His work has also been shown in several group exhibitions at venues such as Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin; Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris; and Astrup Fearnley Museet in Oslo. He also represented New Zealand at the 56th Venice Biennale in 2015 and participated at the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013.
