See Me, Feel Me, Touch Me, Heal Me
“Art has an enormous power to transform,” Jonny Star (b. Düsseldorf, 1964; lives and works in Berlin and New York) believes. Star’s work blends a variety of materials and media such as bronze, photography, fabrics, and elements of installation art. Her ensembles explore biographical experiences, sexuality, gender roles, and identity and how it is perceived by society. See Me, Feel Me, Touch Me, Heal Me is the artist’s first monograph and presents a survey of her oeuvre of the past two decades. Three essays round out the volume: The art historian and exhibition organizer Eva Meyer-Hermann discusses Jonny Star’s most recent works, the tapestries Free Your Soul, and traces an arc to the artist’s curatorial projects. The curator and author Tina Sauerländer offers an introduction to Star’s oeuvre and describes her approach and evolution as an artist. The art critic and writer Ralf Hanselle’s contribution examines Star’s utopian vision, focusing on an early work, the installation Weltstadt Berlin from 1996.
