Alexandra Tretter, 2021

Wo muss ich drücken, damit der Vogel singt?

400 x 212 cm
Acrylic on linen

The central motif of Tretter's works is the oval. This is a form reminiscent of body parts such as the mouth, eye or vulva. Organs that are characterized by the interplay of openness and closedness and are identity-forming. The limits and possibilities of femininity define not only a state, but also the effect. The work was part of her solo exhibition DIE MODULE SPIELEN VERRÜCKT, which took place at the IKOB in 2021.
