Past Exhibition

Thirteen Angels

George Nama Etchings, Drawings, Sculpture & Poetry by Alfred Brendel

April 2 — May 14, 2004

Alfred Brendel’s poems in German, along with their English translations, book-end the thirteen Nama gouaches and accompanying etchings, along with thirteen sculptures in this exhibition titled “Thirteen Angels.” This show is complemented by its companion exhibition, a previous Brendel-Nama collaboration called “Devils’ Pageant.”

George Nama’s works give apt expression to Brendel’s mischievous verses, which the distinguished critic and Academie Francaise member Yves Bonnefoy, declares to be “what angels and devils look like … beautiful images … now the happy consequence of this inquiry into our inner self.”
