Susanne Roewer’s works combine the artist’s intense interest in materials with an artistic sensibility and conceptual wit. Her sometimes extensive research and observations lead her to historical figures and events, folk art and old fables, but also to current socio-political debates and events. The diversity of the themes reveals the contemporary in the historical, and returns that which is seemingly past back to the present. The humorous titles contrast with the seriousness of the works: the artist thereby challenges the spectator to follow her into the alternative universes of her art.
