Nico Ihlein works and lives in Berlin. He studied Information Science at Freie Universität Berlin and Experimental Media Design at the Universität der Künste Berlin. He also worked and showed extensively with the artist group Honey Suckle Company, contributing to their open associative work practice. His work has been shown in several group and solo shows.
Ihlein’s recent works are an ongoing series of empty ceramic vessels, which are inspired by the costumes of the belle époque, Tupperware and alien blobs. They are sculptural gestures between ornament and abstraction, android-ized bodies and sublime beauty.
