Rona Pondick at the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg – The Seoul Times


Rona Pondick’s piece, Little Bathers, is included in a new exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg entitled, On Everyone’s Lips.

The show features artists from Pieter Bruegel to Cindy Sherman, highlighting international art that deals with oral motifs. The The Seoul Times wrote, “the siege of speech, pain, lust, passion, eating and spitting, the mouth is currently receiving the greatest attention worldwide as the scene of the highly infectious Covid-19 disaster. In the past few months, it has moved to the center of social, political and media debates. On Everyone’s Lips presents more than 150 exhibits from Antiquity to the present. A specially conceived architecture representing an abstracted oral cavity serves as a backdrop for an impressive range of works relating to the oral.”

The exhibition is open October 31st, 2020 to April 5th, 2021.
