Sibylle Jazra

(1973, Germany)

In her large material collages, SIBYLLE JAZRA creates subtle allusions that occasionally become concrete without revealing their innermost. Rather, they referentially bend in many directions and, through fragments of quotations, form a new pattern of meaning that sometimes appears humorously, sometimes poetically.

What the mix of materials achieves through the juxtaposition of the different materials, is also shown in Jazra's gesticulating metal works through a purist reduction of surface, material and color. Using a variety of media including sculpture, installation, painting, and collage, Jazra deconstructs recurring elements into a personal narrative structure. The artist learned her craft at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, where she studied Autonomous Sculpture. In 2019, she received a scholarship from the Kulturwerk der VG Bild Kunst Bonn and published her monograph "Schickeria Glitterati" with Kerber Verlag in 2020.
