Saskia Te Nicklin, born 1979 in Copenhagen, lives and works in Vienna. She graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Copenhagen, and studied at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste Wien under prof. Amelie von Wulffen. Saskia’s new work has been produced during her stay in Japan, inspired by themes such as age, youth, spirituality and materiality.
For the show, a series of figurative paintings and drawings will be shown executed in wood-glue and plastic. The figures strike poses known to daily activities such as shopping, walking, sleeping, eating, etc. What is noticeable are the somewhat deformed or wrinkled attributes caused by the materiality of plastic, plastic bags and the wood-glue.
Exhibition takes place at the Austrian Embassy in Tokyo – 1-1-20 Motoazabu, Minato-ku, Tokyo 106-0046.
