Oliver Beer Oma

The melancholy beauty of Oliver Beer’s Oma (Thaddaeus Ropac) lifted my heart. A pianola plays a tune composed by the artist with his grandmother while telling the story of its own making. Around it, Beer has arranged sliced sculptures holding her paintbrush, books and cane, hinged like devotional pictures.
