The exhibits give a rare insight into the sketch books, drawings and poetic scripts of the artist. Adire-batiks, which have not been on public show for decades, complete the graphic artwork. Her oil painting ‘Golden Ritual for Olorisha Ajagemo’ (1955) - on loan from the Art Collection of the County of Lower Austria - will be shown in public for the first time ever. A video by the artist Dunja Herzog is putting Susanne Wenger’s poetic scripts into a contemporary context.
We are pleased to announce that there will be a Limited Edition Collection of 3 selected works by Susanne Wenger (25 pieces each, hight quality pigment print on classic watercolour board).
