Animals determine the visual world of the oeuvre by Gabriela Oberkofler: birds, insects, frogs, foxes, cows and horses - animals that mostly are only attended in their injured or dead state - beautiful pictures with radical content! Oberkoflers drawings and installations bring them back to life. They belong to the remembrance of the South Tyrolean artist who continuously grapples in her work with natural and cultural areas or their destruction and loss, to raise the question of identity and obsession. Fences and cages appear here as symbols of established structures and regulations that she sets apart again, with pleasure.
(Andrea Jahn 2014)
