Trevor Gould

Trevor Gould, südafrikanischer Künstler und in Montréal/Kanada ansässig, ist kontinuierlich auf Reisen. Sein Werk als Installationskünstler, Bildhauer und Zeichner kreist immer wieder um die Kraft der Bilder, die besonders durch Kontextverschiebungen zum Ausdruck kommt. In den neuen Arbeiten, die seit 2006 entstanden sind, setzt sich Gould mit dem fragmentarisch erhaltenen Freskenzyklus (14. Jh.) einer kleinen romanischen Kirche im südfranzösischen Digne-les-Bains auseinander, der den Menschen ihre Laster in Bildern vor Augen führte und sie durch die Darstellung der Tugenden erziehen sollte. Die Laster sind dort dargestellt als Tierfiguren, die die Menschen begleiten, doch ihre metaphorische Bedeutung erschließt sich uns heute nicht mehr zwingend. Gerade dieser Aspekt öffnet Trevor Gould die Möglichkeit, seinem Thema des einsamen, verlorenen Individuums nachzugehen, für das die Tiere Vermittler und Bindeglied zur eigenen Identität sind.
