Dana Meyer at Art Karlsruhe 2019
Our sculpture space at Art Karlsruhe 2019 is dedicated to a group of works by Dana Meyer. Since her major trade fair appearances in 2012, 2015 and 2017, she is one of the established and respected German sculptors. Several of the presented works are now in public ownership. Since the summer of 2018, the antelope group "Die Schlucht" is shown in the sculpture park of the city of Eschborn. In 2019 we will present her large composition "Schweine" ("pigs") in Karlsruhe.
Dana Meyer forges her virtuoso expressive sculptures freehand from steel. Between human and animal figures, she recognizes a "relationship" that overrides the boundaries to the animal kingdom. And she is not only a master of the great composition. In Karlsruhe, the artist presents a series of bizarre and masterfully crafted fictional insect sculptures in addition to her pig group - her "South Pacific Expedition".
