Summary note
The exhibition "Ida Applebroog" at Kunstmuseum Thun represents the first time that work by this American artist has been the subject of a solo show in Switzerland, and the series "Angry Birds of America" (2018) is even the very first time that her work has been shown at an institution. In Applebroog's oeuvre the ambivalence between life and death is tangible. A number of her birds look as if they had fallen down dead from a power line. For Applebroog, they are closely connected to her perception of current American politics and the Trump era."--Publisher's description.
