Lovers Rock is a new, large-scale installation by Berlin-based Nina Braun. The soft sculpture is made of wool and various fabrics to resemble a baboon cliff, but is occupied by a multitude of slouching humans. We take in the installation as a whole at first, but upon approaching, it becomes more interesting to reflect upon the positioning and attitude of the individual players. The simple lines and shapes allow the piece to be accessible, leading the viewer deeper under the surface for a more profound exploration of relationships, identity and community.
Artist: Nina Braun
Lovers Rock opens on May 28, 2011 at Helium Cowboy in Hamburg and runs until sometime in July.
