Tenderpixel is pleased to present Gestalt, the first solo exhibition in London for German artist Tina Hage. Her new series of images are a timely reflection of the many scenes of protest recently seen throughout the world. It is necessary for us, however, to consider the original German meaning of the word gestalt: that is 'form,' or 'to take shape'. Gestalt is not a definitive statement, but a mercurial observation that refuses to remain static and complete. Like any observation, Tina Hage's series is a collection of positions and gestures that create a unified concept or patterns which are greater then the sum of its parts.
Tina Hage (b 1976, Port-au-Prince HT) is a London-based artist. She grew up in Duesseldorf and studied at the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne, Germany till 2004. She completed her Masters of Fine Arts at Goldsmiths College, University of London in 2009.
