Amelie von Wulffen: The Misjudged Bimpfi
German artist Amelie von Wulffen presents her first solo exhibition in the UK entitled The misjudged Bimfi from 10 February to 2 April 2017. It showcases a significant new body of her work that combines her interest in the confessional and the unconscious.
Von Wulffen’s works often disclose a simultaneously personal and generational experience of growing-up in post-war Germany, and explicitly, a climate of blame and repression. For this exhibition, she presents her specially created installation of new paintings as well as her largest sculptural installation to date. Her titular “Bimpfi” references a German-language children’s book in which the protagonist, an anthropomorphised mushroom, is unjustly shunned when accused of crimes he did not commit.
Additionally, this exhibition launches a new monograph surveying von Wulffen’s practice, published by Studio Voltaire in partnership with Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich and Koenig Books. Encompassing nearly 20 years of the artist's work the publication includes new essays by Bernhart Schwenk, Curator of Contemporary Art at Pinakothek der Moderne, writer Manfred Hermes and artist Amy Sillman.
The commission has been supported by the Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen (IfA), The Elephant Trust and The Amelie von Wulffen Supporters Circle.
