Lotta Blokker - Sculptures

Over the past few years Lotta Blokker has become fascinated by images that illustrate injustice and grief so powerfully that they become a symbol of human suffering. The work in SCULPTURES is inspired by photographs that seem to capture the greatest atrocities in history in a single image that everyone knows.

Faced with her own powerlessness to do anything to ease all this suffering Lotta Blokker attempts in her sculptures – which seem to breathe – to make time stand still, or even to turn back the clock. SCULPTURES is about people, victims and also about the healing power of art.

In 2014 Lotta Blokker’s work was exhibited at De Fundatie Zwolle in her solo show The Hour of The Wolf, which featured nine life-sized bronzes that articulate what it is to be an insomniac.
