Sonja Ferlov Mancoba - Artists - Aicon Art 2024


Born 1911 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Died 1984 in Paris, France.

Sonja Ferlov Mancoba holds a central position in Danish art history. Primarily affiliated with Linien, she also exhibited with Høstudstillingen and CoBrA. Ferlov Mancoba's sculptures from 1935 to 1984 are artistic expressions of her view of humanity: "They are human expressions more than art," as she put it. She believed in letting the material speak to her and proceeded without prior plans or finished compositions in mind. In her strong bronze sculptures, you see inspiration fluctuating between movements of spontaneous art and concrete constructivism.
