Sitzfleisch, a solo exhibition by Susanne Wawra

Mon, 05/18/2020 to Fri, 06/12/2020

curated by:

Sitzfleisch (Sitting Flesh)
or The German Art Of Sitting (On Your Behind)

Susanne Wawra visually tackles the German concept of Sitzfleisch, one of these compound words that express a certain quality that can't quite be grasped in the English language. Literally translated, sitzfleisch means 'sitting flesh' or 'sitting meat', a term for one's behind or bottom. In its use, to have sitzfleisch means the ability to sit still for long periods of time to be productive, a certain stamina at work and in life working through a situation or bringing a project to an end.

Wawra's works are a play on endurance, staying power as well as sitting and flesh; with an autobiographical and associative approach. This is translated into different forms of expression: her characteristic layered mixed media pieces as well as drawings, oil painting, ceramics and sculpture.
