Zweistromland/The High Priestess

Kiefer's sculpture is as massive as his painting, thick with the artists mark, thick with material and thick with allusion. These oversized volumes crowd the shelves, brambles and vines woven throughout the entirety. Kiefer stated in an interview for his gallery 'The White Cube' that "i create history, i do history, history is my mud." His books look like volumes of history before history, the history of the unknown parts of the world, the mysterious and unwritten, written in mud and ash.
