CV

Len Bay's artistic practice is primarily defined by large-scale installations composed of architectural elements and sculptural objects. Everyday life observations and intimate moments are fragmentarily merged with memories and storytelling, often autobiographical, and assembled with new authenticity. The artistic work initially develops through a period of research and imagination processes. Bay's thinking spaces are characterized by longing and belonging, remembering and search for identity.

 

Len Bay (*1994, Hamburg) is based in Leipzig. Since 2022 they're studying Installation and Space in the class of Prof. Joachim Blank at the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig (HGB). From 2019 to 2022 Len studied Sculpture/Metal in the class of Prof. Andrea Zaumseil at the Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design Halle/Saale. 2018 to 2019 they studied Fine Art at the Muthesius University of Fine Arts and Design Kiel.
