HALS ÜBER KOPF – HEAD OVER HEELS
The old saying “head over heels” means someone has stumbled. It also refers to something surprising and unexpected. Actually, it sounds rather backwards; it should read “heels over head” to convey something really upside down. In the representation of many objects, sculptures, and portraits the lower body is often ignored: only the head is depicted. However, audacious character heads, “fat” heads, and children’s drawing of heads with legs leave a clear impression and retain their mystery.
“Head Over Heels” is a theme for the multifaceted expression of pictorial and sculptural objects by the Bremen artist Markus Keuler and Indian artist Baby Appachan, as well as the artists from the Schlumper atelier: Miriam Hosner, Magid Ajjane, Malte Kaiser, Rohulla Kazimi, Bernhard Krebs, Horst Wäßle, and those from the Kunstwerkstatt 18.
