Until 13 September 2009 the States Museum for Art and Design in Nürnberg showcases the actual work of the Berlin-based artist Wiebke Siem – the 55 year old Siem is foremost famous for her overdimensioned every day objects. Since 2005 Wiebke Siem has focussed on the illustration of her childhood memories and fantasies. Old and used furniture combined with puckish figures and wooden masks different kinds of bizarre actors populate typical post-war sceneries. Siem tries to describe psychologically the petit bourgeois and dusty environment of a whole generation.
