Henrike Stahl’s “True Nature” is an exhibition subtly exploring the parallels between animals and humans. In her photographs are beautiful human figures which she then paints with the head of an animal or bird. These pieces give us the sense of how we feel or act like these creatures whether it be socially, during courting, or just being alone. Sometimes we may feel “shy like a mouse”, “confident like a horse”, or “sensitive like a small bird”... these painted heads express our core nature and desires.

Henrike was born in 1980 in Mottau, a village of West Germany. She lives and works in Paris and Berlin.
