Anselm Kiefer: Maria walks amid the thorn / Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac Salzburg

Just in time for the Salzburg Festival 2008, Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac in Salzburg opened an exhibition with a new cycle of works by German artist Anselm Kiefer. The show, named after the once popoular German Advent and Christmas carol “Maria durch ein Dornwald ging” (Maria walks amid the Thorn), presents around 30 pictures and a sculpture. Most of the works were made in 2007/2008. Some of the works on display were started in the 1970s and completed over the past months with the sedimenting working method that is so typical for Anselm Kiefer. A catalogue including an interview with Anselm Kiefer by Klaus Dermutz will accompany the exhibition. Impressions from the opening, July 24, 2008.
