Die faule Nuss
(Englisch / German Edition)
Distanz Verlag Gmbh Llc
Places Where Things Seem to Work Differently. Okka-Esther Hungerbühler (b. Bonn, 1988; lives and works in Berlin)creates microcosmic dreamscapes sprung from a burgeoningpictorial imagination. The paintings unfold concrete narrative detailsand stories that the sculptures dismantle in gestures packing apunch. In the exhibition space, Hungerbühler, who studied inThomas Zipp's master class, arranges her work to conjure up scenicmoments; the sculptures, some of them vaguely robotic, seem tohave anticipated the viewer's response and interact with thepaintings. The question to which her hazy characters and creaturalsceneries appear to frame a response is this: how can one still tellfantastic, sad, and savage stories today? The publicationDie Faule Nuss presents Hungerbühler's sculptures in characteristicconjunction with her paintings, a blend of figuration and abstractionthat recalls Pop art and comic strips. With an essay by MaureenDietrich and a foreword by Brigitte Hausmann.
