PALMS. Visions of the good life. A dream, a hope, an escape from everyday life. With candles and ashtrays in the shape of palms or a glitter palm in an ice-cream sundae, we take a bit of it home—an admission that we dream a dream of great happiness, combined with a genial petty bourgeois mentality.

Lena von Goedeke


The artist Lena von Goedeke (*1983) frequently examines surface structures. She utilizes diverse materials such as cement sand, marble, or furniture covers, makes use of 3D programs, interrogates her own work and production conditions, and has developed a language of her own in cut out. There is consequently an ongoing exchange between art and science. Her works are highly aesthetic and conceptually complex, but have one thing in common: making data visible with the aid of surfaces. The new publication takes up precisely this complexity in both its design and text contributions.
