Karin Wiberg’s characterful sculptures of human beings and animals are self-possessed, expressing peace and thoughtfulness. In the summer her works claim their space in different parts of The Thiel Gallery’s garden – some sculptures are clearly visible, others more hidden. Together, they lead a walk that lets the visitor discover unexpected spots. The exhibition becomes an opportunity to slow down and enjoy the stillness under the grand old oak or the view of the fruit trees and the sunlit grass-slopes.
