Warm invitation to the exhibition
Wed 13 – Fri 29 September 2017
The sculptor Ruth Gossweiler has observed the body language of the birds. She has watched as her wings open and close as they expose themselves to buoyancy and winds as they fly and land.
The result is modeling studies made of paper, flax and wire.
If birds move through the air, the shape of their wings causes air movements that give them buoyancy. During the flight the birds open their wings and spread the feathers. Their wingspan allows them to be worn. They set up storms, back and forth wind. Mule sailers glide, herons are hovering, swans row, blue-eared hummers humming. Each wing shape allows a specific flight mode adapted to a specific lifestyle. The Albatros flies in the sea wind, the stone eagle in the mountain wind, the river Tern at the Klemerwässer, the Redtail in the trees, the owl silently in the night. Birds are bipeds, like humans. Their wings, with shoulders, elbows and wrist, have a similar structure to the bones of our arms.
