Petra Jung makes paintings, drawings, objects, installations, art in public space
Born 1968 in Kusel, Germany; lives in Saarbrücken. www.petra-jung.de
Petra Jung takes a look back to her childhood, recalls child’s plays, songs, fairy tales, and recollects memories that seemed to have been forgotten. In her work, she searches for significant signs, which refresh her memories and identify characteristics that mark our culture. Searching for the roots and reflecting the past helps to better understand the future. Her installation of drawings and objects will reveal a rhythmical whole of archaic signs and patterns.
