"Tumulus"
by sabine7 / May 30, 2008
Nina Braun has a new show up at Helium Cowboy in Hamburg and instead of being shoe-based, the focus is on woolly creatures. Braun takes traditional female handiwork to a new level by creating soft sculpture installations that depict the dynamic between unnamed creatures with only eyes in common. Tumulus is what seems to be a writhing mass of snakes, worms or socks with vision, while In the Countryside is peopled with a variety of animal and geometric shapes (our favorite is the chubby sleeping one). And Braun is also responsible for the first warm and fuzzy Circle of Friends mandala we have ever seen.
