Modernity is defined by the idea of passive matter shaped and acted upon by humans. Through art, we can turn this perspective around and ask: How do these things shape and act upon us? This reversal is an integral part of reception theory, but beyond the field of art, the question also raises numerous border issues and phobias related to the dualistic world view and its separation of living and dead matter, and of subject and object. The “animation” of matter is a key problem of modernity only because it affects or directly alters the state of being not only of things, but also of the human subject.

In her show titled “IM ÜBER ALL,” the Berlin-and-Düsseldorf-based sculptural artist Yvonne Roeb (*1976) places her sculptures, which are composed of naturalistic, surreal and artificial elements, in the context of the Wunderkammer, the cabinet of curiosities. Borrowing from the animal, plant and mineral kingdoms, Roeb sculpts her composite creatures from modern, unusual materials, but also draws a line to classical sculpture. At the Ernst Schering Foundation, her thematically always ambiguous works will be presented in a wall of niches that allows every object to unfold its power.
