Samuel Henne’s work is concerned with the complex interrelationships between sculpture and photography, particularly how sculptural objects are represented, displayed and transformed. Recently, Henne has been exploring museum displays and cabinets, as well as the underlying strategies of archiving sculptures in historical and archaeological contexts. In his practice, Henne intertwines formal, art historical and contemporary aspects to create images.
