Artists: Hideki Iinuma & Daniel Lipp
Japanese artist Hideki Iinuma (1975) sculpts wooden figures with a hint of ostentatious sexuality. He is inspired by Renaissance artist Lucas Cranach the Elder, the art movement Neo-Pop and the changing perception of women in Japanese society. Iinuma unmasks the contemporary ideal of beauty and endows the female figures a new kind of dignity and individuality.
Daniel Lipp (1982) is known for his poetic and deliberately untouchable objects and sculptures. He draws inspiration from the urban environment and combines abstract and figurative elements. His latest work finds itself between the art of painting, drawing and photography and is reminiscent of woven textile and grainy images.
