The origin of the word “hybrid” can be traced etymologically to two sources: Latin hybrida (mongrel, bastard) and Greek hybris (pride, arrogance). Unions between plants, human beings, animals and technologies give rise to flexible hybrids; organic and synthetic materials mutate into amorphous, indefinite beings.

“He spoke, and immediately, as he commanded, the cattle, driven from the mountain, headed for the shore, where the great king’s daughter, E uropa, used to play together with the Tyrian virgins. Royalty and love do not sit well together, nor stay long in the same house. So the father and ruler of the gods, who is armed with the threeforked lightning in his right hand, whose nod shakes the world, setting aside his royal sceptre, took on the shape of a bull, lowed among the other cattle, and, beautiful to look at, wandered in the tender grass.”
—Ovidio, Metamorphoses, Bk II:833875 Jupiter’s abduction of Europa

“I don’t portray permanence; more than anything else, I portray fragments in their becoming. The compositions – referring to them as such for reasons of simplicity—from which I begin are never definitive but move with the passage of time, either because some pieces fall over or because I move them around myself. I don’t establish permanent positions, a strong precariousness always prevails.”

Lena Henke “My History of Flow” – Curated by Anna Goetz
Lena Henke has developed a diverse body of sculptural works, often arranged in comprehensive spatial installations. Henke’s work references urban planning, Land Art, human relationships, sexuality and fetishism, consistently infiltrating the patriarchal structure of art history with a very smart and humorous tone.
