MoMA PS1 presents Sergej Jensen, the first solo exhibition of the Berlin-based artist at a New York museum.

Jensen's poetic artworks provide a fresh approach to Minimalist painting. Employing a wide range of textiles, the artist uses additive and subtractive physical methods like bleaching, fraying, or sewing to stand in for the traditional gestures of pure painting. Through these processes, Jensen creates fragile and quiet abstractions that become contemplations of the history and reuse of his chosen materials, and conjure a network of visual and visceral associations from the stains, holes, cracks, and other traces of use that in turn become his primary pictorial elements.
