Marion Boehm

Alemania, 1958

After studying Interior Design, Marion Boehm worked as Interior Architect in Europe before moving to South Africa in 2010. Being engaged in a private community project in Kliptown, she began her artistic career in Johannesburg creating her unique magnificent collages. The artist addresses and examines the interfaces and relationships between African and Western cultures in history until nowadays. Her themes relate to personal experiences and are reflected in her different series focusing on socio-economic and cultural matters. Her work is an impressive combination of artistic integrity, conceptual vision and aesthetic beauty. “When love is the seed, bursting buds can unfold their inner beauty. Love is a universal energy which can change anything. Nature is teaching us to appreciate diversity. But it's not enough to nurse our own inner garden as it's not enough not to be a racist. Wherever being a witness of something wrong, active reaction is required in arguing against it and in intervening. Beyond the evaluation of historical facts, we all need to undergo a permanent process of critical self-reflection... Only public discussion and engagement can lead to understanding, respect and peaceful coexistence.”
