Compared with other works
Nothing wrong; Europe Power Handstand. Ernst Leonhard's (Berlin, picture 1,more information) work plays catchy way with a heavy body that adopts a onwaarschijlijke attitude.

The artwork Allison Lapper Pregnant by Marc Quinn (London, picture 2,more information) is contradictory: a flawed body is performed in one of the finest materials, made a human deficit exhibited no single gene. It is logical that this evokes a fierce resistance in many people. This artwork is a masterpiece by the perfect execution and lifelike expression and fundamental discussions it evokes.

Wolfgang Matteuer's Jahrhunderschritt (Berlin, picture 3,more information) depicts a person off which does not correspond to the ideal of beauty. This person makes an incredibly big step forward and is apparently incredibly strong. Wolfgang Matt Heuer knows Jahhundertschritt ('One Hundred Years Step', Berlin) to portray a convincing person without the use of perfect shapes, proportions and colors.

With Der Gestürzte Krieger by Markus Lüpertz (Berlin, picture 4,more information) we witness the last moment of a brave man who has fought for a good cause. The materialization is shocking; the person already appears to defend.

It is so painful to walk through an intimate space of two lovers who are totally vulnerable meeting. Maybe the people of Wohin Gehst Du by Andreas Wegner (Berlin, picture 5,more information), experience their last moments together.

Although Karl Bobek's Torso (Berlin, picture 6,more information) of a man impersonates who is actively involved, the man also seems to perish. This man confronts effectively serious issues of life and mortality.

Miriam Lenk: "Based on the illustration of the female body, I have developed a canon of shapes that transforms anatomical details to describe plastically feelings such as self-confidence, erotic, anger etc. Existing beauty ideals are re-examined.
The female image is carried further to juxtapose various associations and shapes of femininity. A new field is the topic of growth.
My works move increasingly away from the human anatomy and merge body shapes of humans, animals, and landscapes."

Stehende, bis auf ihre Plateauschuhe unbekleidete weibliche Figur in üppigen gerundeten und molligen Formen in starker Überlebensgröße, die Arme hinter dem Kopf verschränkt.

www.wikipedia.org:
Miriam Lenk (* 1975 in Konstanz) ist eine deutsche Bildhauerin.
Miriam Lenk studierte von 2000 bis 2007 Freie Kunst an der Hochschule für Bildende Künste Dresden bei Eberhard Bosslet und Ralf Kerbach. Seit 2009 lebt und arbeitet sie in Berlin und Bodman.
Das Zentrum ihres Werkes bildet ein weiblicher Archetyp: groß und prächtig, raumgreifend und dominant. Dies soll eine Galionsfigur für alle Frauen sein, die sich in der Gesellschaft zu dick, zu laut oder zu anders fühlen.
Werke im öffentlichen Raum schuf sie mit Yolanda, in Bronze, vor der Investitionsbank Berlin und in Epoxidharz vor einem Seehotel in Ludwigshafen; Molch und Strauss in der Oberen Vorstadt in Albstadt-Ebingen und Janusfee im Weingut Drei Herren in der Sammlung Rainer Beck. Ihre aktuellen Ausstellungen sind Disturbance Witch im Zentrum für aktuelle Kunst der Zitadelle Berlin-Spandau und Lusus Naturae bei BCMA Berlin.
Im Gegensatz zu ihrem Vater Peter Lenk, der in seinen „steinernen Theaterstücken' die aktuelle und historische Politik verarbeitet, schöpft sie aus einer anderen Quelle: dem Élan vital, dem inneren Lebensdrang. Der Begriff wurde von dem französischen Philosophen Henri Bergson geprägt und hat schon die Surrealisten fasziniert. Besonders in ihrer aktuellen Werkgruppe Elan Vital aus Säulen, Gipskollagen und Zeichnungen geht es zunehmend um die Akkumulation als bildhauerischen Prozess.
