Kiefer: Des Meeres und der Liebe Wellen

Image coming soon.

Sue Hubbard reviews Anselm Kiefer, Des Meeres und der Liebe Wellen at White Cube in London. She writes: "… each work is an attempt at a moment of fixity in the continuous flux of the ocean. Gynaecological instruments superimposed on the surface of the works disrupt traditional Romantic readings and imply a desire for human intervention in the timeless cycles of birth and death… [Kiefer] has been criticised for being theatrical … Yet in this increasingly frightening and unfettered world we need artists like Kiefer … who are prepared to face what is tragic rather than endlessly celebrating what is glib, slick and ephemeral."
