Amelie von Wulffen @ Studio Voltaire

10 February 2017 - 2 April 2017

Nostalgic and melancholic, Amelie von Wulffen’s practice portrays a sense of unease, with works often suggesting themselves as autobiographical, recording fear, sexual fantasy and emotional trauma. The artist makes distinct references to European painters of the 19th and 20th centuries, applying the brushwork and subjects of Hans von Marées, Paul Cezanne and Giorgio de Chirico, amongst others, to canvas, paper and furniture.
For her commission at Studio Voltaire, von Wulffen will produce new work, including paintings and an ambitious sculptural installation. Incorporating past motifs from her practice and responding to the history and architecture of Studio Voltaire’s unique vaulted gallery, this will be the first significant introduction of von Wulffen’s practice to both London and UK-wide audiences. Additionally, this exhibition will launch a new monograph surveying von Wulffen’s practice, published by Studio Voltaire and Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich.
