Susanne Roewer's sculptures and paintings play with representational motifs and combine a variety of different materials. The artist borrows from the natural sciences to give material expression to her ideas and thoughts.

What was swept away, and what was destroyed? Some things glow more than before in the darkness, but closer inspection also reveals cracks, dents, holes.
