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