Johann Arens (b. 1981, Aachen, Germany) uses installation and video to survey the documentary properties of public interiors and their inherent social textures. By deliberately placing artworks atypically he redirects attention to places in the peripheral vision. His sculptures are found embedded in standardised work environments, educational frameworks, community centres, neighbourhood businesses and digital inclusion charities. These site-related interventions are enquiries into the multiple ways novel technologies device our communal life and shape civil behaviour.

Recent exhibitions have included ‘Ecologies’ Bold Tendencies , London, UK (2018); ‘Findings on Palpation’ P/////AKT, Amsterdam, Netherlands (2018); ‘digital_self’, Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin, Ireland (2017); ‘These Rotten Words’, Chapter Art Centre, Cardiff, Wales (2017) ‘Preis für Junge Kunst’ NAK, Aachen, Germany (2016) ‘You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet’, Beursschrouwburg, Brussels, Belgium (2016). Public commissions have included Motion Tracks, Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge, UK (2016); Platform 2016, Deptford X, London, UK (2016); and 100 Arches, Arnolfini and Art and the Public Realm Bristol, UK (2014). Johann recently completed residencies at SPACE, London (2017), Asia Culture Centre, Gwangju, South Korea (2016) and at the Rijksakademie, Amsterdam (2014/15).
