In the exhibition Bumped Body by Paloma Varga Weisz (Mannheim, Germany, 1966), we're getting submerged in a new world. Bodies, whether male or female, have no fixed shape in this Alice-in-Wonderland universe. In Wilde Leute (1998), that is publicly on view for the first time in the Bonnefanten, the small terracotta figures represent curious creatures; androgynous people with animal ears. The work from 1998 shows that even in the early days of her practice Varga Weisz was trying to distance herself from identities and role patterns. In her work, Varga Weisz operates smoothly between woodcarving and ceramics, drawings and watercolours, theatrical environments, and film and sound works. With these disciplines and media she raises an enchanting world in the exhibition where peculiar creatures set the tone.
