Works by Janaina Tschäpe have been selected for the exhibition ‘Fruits de la Passion’ at the Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Art, which comprises of pieces acquired by the Centre Pompidou in the last ten years. The selection of 31 works created by 25 different artists represents some of the most important pieces by contemporary artists today as well as in the Centre Pompidou collection. In particular, Janaina Tschäpe will present her video works Blood, Sea 1,2,3,4 (2004) that depicts four different mermaid-like creatures, oscillating in the depths of an aquatic realm. Each figure, robed in intertwining layers of fluid fabric, appears as a lyrical and at times ominous reincarnation of the mythical creature.
