ArtworkS of the month – the first six of 2018


Before the summer break, we would like to remind you our first six artworks by seven artists of this year:


Joana Choumali from the Ivory Coast pointed with the diptych Ouagadougou/New York from her series “Translation” to the effects of migration in both: the arrival countries and the countries of origin.





With a photo from her series “Urban Landscape – The Habitat Project” the Cuban artist Lissette Solórzano questioned about modifications within urban space and their signification for the population.





The French artist, scenographer and costume designer Elyse Galiano stitched with natural hair “Huisvrouw” (Housewife) from her series “Apolline, Constance et les autres”. The quote comes from a manual of good manners for woman.





Mariela Fornasari and Ainelén Bertotti Burket, both from Argentina, created with “Autorretrato” a double self-portrait in four dimensions.





The French ceramist Marie Cagnasso reflected with divergent materials in “Question de Liberté” (Question of Freedom) upon the contradictory effects of protection.





With “Luciferine 11” the German artist, Petra Warras made an ambiguous picture. It could be read figurative as well as abstract. The interpretation depends on the imagination of the beholder.





Now we hope you will enjoy your summer and will be back with us in September when we present a new artwork of the month.
