“Susanne Klemm regards nature as her inexhaustible source of inspiration and is moved to intervene in the endless rhythm of growth and decay to add a touch of immortality to the happenings.  The demiurge captures these moments using a fine plastic covering around objects such as fruit, twigs and flowers, freezing them in time and – paradoxically – thus bringing them to full bloom.  Susanne Klemm makes evanescence visible…where does nature end – where does art begin ? Or is the relationship the other way around…”
