For her first Italian museum exhibition, the German artist Judith Hopf chose the environmental settings of the South tyrol landscape which surrounds Museion, in Bolzano. Rather than being a site-specific work, the exhibition aims to connect the artworks on show with the natural landscape of the Dolomites, almost including it in the show itself.
On the occasion of this exhibition, the artist, who designed the exhibition structure by her own, presents old works as “Flock of Sheep“, “Birds looking Back“, together with new body of works, specifically created for the show, which mainly consist of stone sculptures.
The over 30 pieces on displays include works of different techniques, from drawings to videos and sculpture: they stay and at the same time talk with the architectural setting of the venue. Many of the works has both a decorative and functional role. Bricks, in fact, are used both in sculpture and in architectural models that create the exhibition setting.
Born in 1969 in Karlsruhe, Germany the Judith lives and works in Berlin and she is professor of Fine Art, Städelschule, Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende Kunst, Frankfurt am Main.
