About Suse Weber

Suse Weber calls her combination of assemblage and installation “emblematic sculpture” because material, paint, color, and form each contribute to the experience and meaning of her work. “My emblematic sculptures are backdrop-like constructions, orchestrated objects that resemble stages and installation parades at the same time, in which the viewer simultaneously becomes an actor by being assigned a clear space of motion,” she says. Weber transforms everyday social rituals such as sporting events and parades into “choreographed” plays of physical forms, allowing her works to extend into “real social space.”

German, b. 1970
