Sculpture; thorns, metal, clamps, 2023

Lisa Wintermantel's sculptures are made from materials that she finds in nature. She borrows from flora the vulnerability that she associates with the human being. The fragility of the rose and the danger of its thorns symbolise both the beauty of the flower and its openness, which must be defended. `Today it's about you and not about the world.` The branches covered with berries and thorns are fastened together with metal clips that create tension and force movement.

Cooperation with Botanical Garden in Basel with University Basel
