Lena Amuat and Zoë Meyer create encyclopedic cabinets of curiosities (Wunderkammern). Using photography as an ambiguous documentary tool, they collect ethnographic artefacts, mathematical models, educational tools as well as religious relics. By continually recombining and modifying these elements, they devise an ever-expanding image archive which represents a highly subjective world view.


As the title of their ongoing series Artefacts and Models suggests, the artists investigate scientific models which serve the purpose of rendering established facts and knowledge visible for the purpose of transmission. Their work is an attempt to reformulate such scientific conceptions from an artistic point of view.

Lena Amuat and Zoë Meyer are both graduates from the University of Arts, Zurich. They have had exhibitions in different European galleries and museums including the Kunsthalle (Bern), Helmhaus (Zurich) and Galerie Marine Veilleux (Paris). Both currently reside in Berlin.
