DIE UNGEZÄHMTEN HAARE DER GROSSMUTTER (THE UNTAMED HAIR OF THE GRANDMOTHER)
You don’t do that! Who is sticking out the tongue, and why? The tongue here symbolizes trust in life, its untamed nature and the fleshliness of being human. Bodily perception by means of the tongue can unleash some of the most immediate of human feelings - whether it like the taste of a kiss or the experience of food.
The works of Song Jing in the exhibition THE UNTAMED HAIR OF THE GRANDMOTHER (DIE UNGEZÄHMTEN HAARE DER GROSSMUTTER) embody vitality and physicality. In her eponymous work, these hair protrude boldly, vividly, and daringly out of the paper. They will not let themselves be stopped, nor will they let themselves be deterred from an intense life with all its experiences, wishes and dreams of love, strength, desires, intuition and talent – all this and much more is part of our life. To be seen at Sotheby’s in Vienna.
