Kara Walker: "The Bush/Skinny/De-boning", 2002
Kara Walker's art focuses on racism, social injustice, and questions of personal identity. Her historical figures, at first sight apparently unsophisticated, mostly black silhouettes, subtly yet brutally combine episodes from the history of the South with images from Walker's own imagination.
On the occasion of her exhibition at the Deutsche Guggenheim, Kara Walker has created three paper-thin sculptures inspired by silhouettes traditionally used as Christmas decorations in Germany. They are modelled on filigree drawings which the artist executed on paper and then cut out with scissors. The cut-outs have been reproduced in stainless steel painted a matt black.
Three figures, each 15 x 10 cm; stainless steel, painted black.
