Dynamic Art Scene. Moon Art Fair Hamburg, October 28-30, 2022 "We are completely overwhelmed that the MOON ART Fair Hamburg has developed such a dynamic pull effect for the artists," says the curator and founder of the Moon Art Fair, Dr. Barbara Aust-Wegemund, "the hybrid format is perfect for the artists who avoid to travel or to ship large artworks, and still appreciate the international exchange between art institutions and museums, and the presentation of their works at a curated fair." MOON ART is an international, curated art fair focused on all disciplines of contemporary art. Artists, galleries, artist-run spaces, and non-profit institutions have been invited to apply.
James Parrett - Radical Arcs. Moon Art Fair Hamburg is delighted to present again James Parrett's sculptures from Australia. James Parrett graduated with honors from the Victoria College of the Arts in Melbourne. His monumental work is inspired by the aesthetic potential of the circular form and what can be achieved through the dissection and reconfiguration of radial arcs.
Nicola Roos - Obsidian Samurais. For Nicola Roos, a well-known installation artist in South Africa and winner of an art prize from the University of Cape Town, the hybrid concept of the Moon Art Fair Hamburg is perfect for presenting the life-size samurai sculptures "Obsidian Samurai" from the "No Man's Land" series for the first time in Germany. “I mainly work on life-size figurative sculptural installations,” says Cape Town's Nicola Roos, “built from recycled inner tubes. I am interested in the origins of civilization and society, and the ever-changing politics of national identity, collective memory, and cultural belonging in the post-colonial world.” No Man's Land series was inspired by Yasuke (pronounced yas-kay), a man who was taken from his native country in East Africa and ended up working for a powerful feudal lord in late 16th-century Japan.
