The social and personal connotations of clothing, which are persistent carriers of concepts of the body and gender, are made tangible in the artist’s textile sculptures in an spacial manner. In lying, standing and leaning poses, the anthropomorphic figures encounter the viewer just human enough to be approachable. Langhinrich’s works seem like sketches that are not fixed in gender and certainly not in the determinable individual. They serve as open stencils of possible reference variables as well as immaterial impulses and only become thoughtfully completed bodies through the viewer. The human form as a fragment – here always enclosed in clothing, fabric, hidden and covered – is always also seen as a symbol of the human being in crisis. A crisis that is welcomed in the artist’s works with humor and challenge. – Niklas Koschel
