Eva Ohlow’s works in rubber and PVC are a monument to the women fighters and rebels in Africa. The individual countries of Africa, beginning with Tunisia, Republic of Congo, Togo, Senegal, Mali, Angola and Burkina-Faso, which she has traveled since 1963, all have a different character, although a common thread can be felt through the theme. Different landscapes, religions, and still-lived natural ceremonies provide a context that she hopes to convey to the viewer. An exciting show of works from past decades to the present.
In keeping with the theme of the exhibition, the well-known sculptor Karlheinz Oswald is currently working on a series of African drummers in bronze and iron, who, like his dancers, combine strength and grace. Detailed clothing and individual facial features characterize the sculptures, most of which are unique pieces.
