WANT MYSELF BEAUTIFUL DESIRE SCULPT

I do not like this part / I am going to cut this off/ Let me change this a little bit/ Ah, here something has to be done/ This line is not yet this/ This shape is somehow, hm/ There is not enough tension in that line/ Ha this one I am going to take off totally/ No, that is not good yet/ This has to be refined/ This form is not interesting/ In a way, this looks not really appealing/ I am going to sand this/ Here it needs some paint/ The way this…..

Elisabeth von Samsonow. COMING INTO THE WORLD (performance)
Opening hours of the gallery 16th of september until 31st of october, Tuesday-Friday 14-18,
Saturday 11-14

On the occasion of her 60th birthday Elisabeth von Samsonow presents new works under the titel „protuberance“ dealing with the origin of sculpture in camber. Furthermore, a group of large formate paper works are presented for the first time. These works express the fascination the artist had in her thirties for the painting of Frida Kahlo, Paula Modersohn, Lovis Corinth, Max Beckmann and Franz Marc. They explore being a young woman, as a Jeanne d’Arc who goes for fighting, for instance, as friend among friends, as a thinker and researcher of myths, as somebody who projects being female in all directions. The exhibition is dedicated to Hans Kreill, a bavarian farmer, who died in October 2015. He had kept well these works for the artist thirty years long.

Opening speech by Romana Schuler

Elisabeth von Samsonow’s sculptures of linden wood radiate sound and perfume, speaking about the liquid of life, about the green blood chlorophyllum which is so intimately related to the red one. Human breathing is a gift of the plants, recalling that the children of gods are creatures born from one  matrixial body, different in kind, but made from the same wood. Out of encounters in harmony and disharmony, in play or violence, archetypical patterns of power and impotence emerge that draw the tragedy of the individual. (Margot Fassler)
