Sergej Jensen uses diverse textiles, of varying tactility, to create “a painting without paint.” Here, the artist alters the textiles’ material properties by bleaching, cutting, and sewing the swathes in order to investigate the limitations of each. The poetic work can be read as a visual documentation of the transformations and reactions of the various fabrics.

Best known for his textile works, Sergej Jensen (Danish, b. 1973) uses a wide range of materials, including burlap, linen, silk and wool. Jensen describes his work as “painting without paint,” incorporating inherent traces of wear and use alongside deliberate processes such as cutting, sewing, and bleaching; his unique approach promotes investigations into materiality and physicality, borrowing forms and materials from everyday life. Notable exhibitions include the Berlin Biennial (2006) and MoMA PS1, New York (2011).
