Summary:"I Rise - I'm a Black Ocean, Leaping and Wide in Museum Frieder Burda, Baden-Baden and the Salon Berlin, is the first institutional exhibition in Europe of the work of Brazilian artist Sonia Gomes. Sonia Gomes' biomorphic sculptures have an eerie, almost magical presence. Born in 1948 as the extramarital daughter of a white industrialist and a black woman, she grew up between two worlds. Gomes uses all kinds of found or gifted materials for her work, such as textiles, driftwood, furniture or wool, transforming them into sculptures or room-sized installations. Her works become vehicles for her own individualism, blending technical virtuosity and a materiality rooted in African folk art and spiritual traditions, a surreal language of form, Brazilian modernism and various currents of contemporary art." -- Website.
