Wiebke Siem

Wiebke Siem / e-flux.

Since 2005, the Berlin-based artist has been developing a new series of works that hark back to experiences and fantasies from her own childhood. She assembles articles of furniture, apparently ethnological objects and goblin-like cloth figures into psychologically charged spatial installations, combining the bizarre figures (mostly made from fabrics such as loden, a traditional cloth often used for menswear) with prewar and 1950s home décors.
