Susanne Sorg - Statement

With my objects, I want to show things broken and whole. The strength and vulnerability therein. Lightness and gravity. Constraint and relief. Darkness and light.

 

Lines of time meet each other in a space, intertwine and become layers that surround us, connect us and describe life in all its complexity.
