Exhibition rooms for contemporary art

May 2001
The exhibition of the “Guardians” and “Signs of Life” groups of works, which will run until June 15th, consists of partly larger-than-life sculptures with wing-shaped forms, as well as vertical sculptures or rudimentary hinted bodies and long stilt legs.

In addition, there are large bronze heart sculptures, which on the one hand arouse erotic associations, or on the other hand represent transience through their hollowing out.

Gabriele von Lutau’s works thus symbolize both the joy of life, its fragility and the abrupt finality of existence.

“The peculiarities of life and its vulnerability are often closely related,”says the artist about her sculptures, which therefore often resemble totems that offer themselves as projection surfaces for desires for protection and grandeur.
