On 6th December, Ambassador Ammon and his wife Marliese Heimann-Ammon hosted a special private view of “HUMAN”, the all-female exhibition currently being shown at their Residence. Several of the nine artists joined guests to provide a personal insight into their work.

Highlights of the evening included sculptor Uta Brouet’s introduction to the process of sculpture making, painter Valerie Wiffen’s guide to the art of portraiture and photographers Christine Bory and Margarita Mavromichalis discussing their inspirations and working methods.

‘HUMAN’ features works by Frances Blane, Christine Bory, Uta Brouet, Margarita Hernandez, Margarita Mavromichalis, Jane McAdam Freud, Dawn Rowland, Gigi Salomon and Valerie Wiffen. The exhibition celebrates women’s contribution to the arts and society and explores humanity from many different angles.

On 16 November, Ambassador Dr Peter Ammon and his wife Marliese Heimann-Ammon hosted the second private view of the exhibition 'Human' at their Residence.

The artists gave a vivid introduction into their works followed by Jane McAdam Freud, great-granddaughter of Sigmund Freud, who presented her short film “Dead or alive”. The film takes up Sigmund Freud’s concept of ‘Condensation’ and morphs his antiques and Jane’s sculptures into each other – from past to present, virtually closing the gap of time.
