ARTIST'S PROFILE: VIVIANE GERNAERT

The Hamburg-based artist Viviane Gernaert refers in her sculptural and graphic works to contemporary films of the genre Martial Arts. Her figures, made of stiffened fabrics are snapshots of a fraction of movement. For the artist the moment of capturing the dynamic plays the crucial role and the question linked with it: How she can make breath-taking speed in the stiffness of a sculpture visible.

 

Beside her artistic work, she has a great love and passion for animals and wildlife. Especially for elephants.In order to support organizations she got to know as a volunteer, she started the Elephant Dung Paper Project and creates some artistic work and useful objects out of self-made elephant dung paper.

 

​Viviane volunteered for LEO Africa in 2017 and later on she came back for three months as our first dedicated elephant monitor, to assist us in the census of the large population of pachyderms present in the park. Thanks to her professionalism, passion and dedication she conducted an amazing job.

Viviane took part to the the "Artists for LEO Africa auction" for which she realized some drawings taking inspiration from elephants she monitored during her stay at Leo Africa.

In addition to the auction's contribution, Viviane decided that during this difficult time of the Corona Virus crisis, the sale of the Elephant Dung Paper Products should benefit LEO Africa.
