Traps and Transit
The jackdaw on the quay
Some time ago, Ann began to think about the jackdaw that visited her garden every day. It looked curious and looked with annoyed kind eyes at Ann and Dirk as they worked in the studio. Ann then decided to make a jackdaw in bronze and the project was named CORVUS (the family crow in latin). It was cast in a few copies and immediately became very popular.
Some of them are sold, and one was lent to Solliden Royal Castle Park this summer where many could appreciate “The jackdaw”. Ann and her team have since worked with a magnification of “The jackdaw” which is about 180 cm long, 100 cm high and weighs 190 kg.
The idea with the big “Jackdaw” is now that it should be in Visby harbor and welcome everyone who comes by boat to Gotland. The municipality has already offered a place on the outer peak of the inner breakwater.
AWFG has paid the casting for “The jackdaw”, but sponsors are still needed for casting foundations, transport and set up. We also thought that the sponsors names should be on a plaque in connection with the artwork. AWFG´s friends will then take care of the maintenance and make this a recurring spring cleaning event on the quay.
“The jackdaw” has recently been delivered to Ann Wolff´s studio and in collaboration with Galleri Ridelius, we invite you to an opening on October 12thand 13that 13-17 at Björkvägen 2 B, Visby where “The jackdaw”will be shown together with Ann´s new sculptures in glass and metal.

TRAPS AND TRANSIT ANN WOLFF
Traver Gallery, Seattle, Washington
Traver Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of Traps and Transit , a solo exhibition of seven architectual sculptures by German born, Swedish-based artist, Ann Wolff.
Embedded with poetic sensibility, the luminous forms showcase Wolff´s most recent explorations in glass. The artist utilizes the staircase as a connotation of time, and the complex optics of cast chrystal to create visually poetic musings on the vacillation of life: the coming, going and folding back on itself of timeand our own unique perception of it. Staircases leading at once somewhere and nowhere at all, the peices allude to both the futility and beauty of human endeavors.
Ann Wolff received her education at Hochschule fur Gestaltung, Ulm, Germany. Her career is distinguised with numerous awards, including the Lifetime Achievment Award from Glass Art Society. Wolff´s work is housed in many private and public collections throughout the world. In 2017, she established the non-profit foundation, Ann Wolff Foundation Gotland, to promote art and culture and to focus on the material glass.
