7 – Minuten Afrika (bright blue)


”7 – Minuten Afrika” (bright blue)

signed and dated at the back



This series of new works called ‘7 – Minuten Afrika’ 2024 is close to my heart.
As a European artist who studied fine art in South Africa I wonder how a German company can create, mix and name a tea ” Zauberhaftes Afrika”.
How would I feel if a eg Cameroun company would market a tea named European Temptation? Would I buy it? Would I expect it to taste delicious?

The works of 7- Minuten Afrika play with my contemplations on Africa while drinking Zauberhaftes Afrika Tee at home near Berlin. Reading about global interconnectedness, the trading with commodities like, oil, sand, gold, coffee, clothes…
The result is a series of framed works consisting of a teabag shaped object made from traditional South African Shwe-Shwe, a photography taken by myself in 1996 when I first visited the country.
Additional materials used are thread, paper, sand, coin and a pin.
The objects are secured behind a glassed solid wooden frame and the original artwork comes signed and dated at the back with a certificate of authenticity.
Of course there is a story behind each work which I happily share with you. Feel free to contact me via Contact.
