Memory as a dynamic process has been the underlying theme of Sabine Moritz s drawings and paintings since the early 1990s.
In her work the Cologne-based artist has captured remembered images from her childhood in the GDR; drawn flower compositions; and in recent years has engaged with the motif of war.
This publication presents Moritz s latest work: a collection of drawings and paintings of helicopters created between 2002 and 2013.
The Helicopter series has arisen from Moritz s interest in the shift in their symbolic meaning.
They are based on images of helicopters from newspapers and television that the artist transferred into her own language.The outcome is a series of beautiful drawings and paintings that range from objective depictions of helicopters to more poetic compositions.
The works are accompanied by poems by Adam Zagajewski and Friedrich Holderlin, alongside a text by Hans Ulrich Obrist.
