Anne Wenzel

 

presented by Galerie AKINCI

 

 

Born 1972 in Schüttorf, Germany

 

 

Anne Wenzel’s sculptures which are made of ceramics are focusing on violence and destruction: dying stags, fighting dogs, cars wrecked by bomb attacks and the shattered ruin of a forest after the passage of a hurricane. These works and her newest body of ‘monuments’ can be considered  as contemporary Vanitas symbols that speak of faded glory, decrepit decadence and loss in general.
