Oliver Herring is among a select group of contemporary artists rigorously exploring the dynamic relationship between photography and sculpture. Performance is central to his work and practice, such as the process of knitting, and his efforts to combine, layer and piece together photographic fragments into sculptural wholes. His work ranges from ethereal sculptures of Mylar knitted into human figures, clothing, and furniture, to open-ended stop-action videos that embrace chance, stream-of-consciousness, and the unpredictable. Herring was born in Heidelberg, Germany, and now lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. He is the recipient of grants from Artspace, The New York Foundation for the Arts, and the Joan Mitchell Foundation. He has had solo exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; and the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, among others.
