In conversation with sculptures by:
SATCH HOYT (b. 1957)
Sex, the most basic and primal of human instincts was at the core of many Expressionist works.
Death is inevitable. This universal theme became even more potent and relevant for Expressionist artists in an age marked by war and social upheaval.
It is in the spirit of Charles Bukowski’s words "SEX IS KICKING DEATH IN THE ASS WHILE SINGING” that Side by Side Gallery Akim Monet explores these themes.
Satch Hoyt’s FRAGMENTED (THE ACT OF RAPE IN WARTIME) investigates the red army rape of German women during the 1945 soviet occupation of Berlin. The porcelain figurines executed in Berlin in 2009-12 are made of broken fragments from the 1945 bombing of Berlin.
