In her solo exhibition 'ringing critical forests' the artist Heide Hinrichs (°1976) presents a series of new sculptures, installations and works on paper, in addition to an existing video.


The exhibition marks a new step in the development of a conscious anti-spectacular practice with a particularly modest economy. Hinrichs uses simple materials such as wood, pencil, paper, plaster, rope and stone to create rich sensory experiences. The human body forms a reference when creating three-dimensional objects with organic shapes.

Hinrichs’ works are reactions to situations she experiences and often connected to the surroundings of places where she has lived or worked, such as her current flat in Brussels or the house where she grew up in Germany. Her sculptures refer to both intimate events and are elements of imaginary dialogues. Bringing the past and the present together to find pleasure in the now is a common thread throughout her work.

Next to her exhibition, KIOSK supports the publication of shelf documents which will be published in January 2021 by Track Report, KASK Antwerp. The book forms the legacy of the collaborative research project second shelf that Hinrichs started in 2018. The research triggered several libraries and educational institutions nationally and internationally to commence the acquisition process of a specific series of publications by non-binary, female, queer and artists of color.

KIOSK also cordially invites you to discover the related work Inscriptions by Hinrichs in the group exhibition Risquons-Tout at WIELS, Brussels. Initially, this series of drawings would have been the central element of her exhibition at KIOSK in April 2020, but the current health crisis overturned those plans.
