Starting from sculpture and installation, sometimes located on the border between art and design, Wiebke Siem’s works comment on social conventions related to issues of gender, appearance and masks, the creation of myths and collective value. Humour and irony, citation and invention direct his critical eye and the figurative options which give it its expression.
