SITUATE / 6 to 20 March 2011
Baumann's work is equal parts whimsy and satire, a colourful and effecting investigation into the spectacular, volatile and deceptive nature of contemporary celebration. Her poetic and kinetic sculptures are frequently site specific. They are temporary monuments to indefinite victories. She shares a material vocabulary with the supermarket or the Party Planner, although despite this shiny, happy palette, an insidious anxiety always hovers nearby, waiting.” (Weston, Gemma).
