In the exhibition, Sonja Yakovleva’s work – a newly created, large scale paper cut as well as loans from private collections – is presented together with works by pop art icon Keith Haring, whose compositions show figures, drawn quickly and evenly in one continuous line onto the ground. Although this artistic practice stands in strong contrast to Sonja Yakovleva’s delicate paper cuts, in which each line is neatly cut out, the works of both artists show remarkable connections in the subversive representation of pop cultural images and ideas.
