MARIA LOBODA LISTEN TO ME, LITTLE PIG!
Maria Loboda’s exhibition Listen to me, little pig! at Galerie Thomas Schulte explores the failures, double meanings, and misinterpretations in the communications between man and nature. With characteristic wit and irony, the artist transforms the space: a series of prints of pastoral landscape paintings bear palpable suggestions for ambient soundtracks and form the almost panoramic backdrop of Loboda’s fragmented gardenscape. Here, among fruit trees growing out of brutalist sculptures and candle-shaped overgrown metal trellises, carefully selected and manipulated hints and quotes from literature, music, and art history have been planted by the artist for visitors to mingle with and be seduced by.
