Genzken's totems of the shattered utopia

Isa Genzken was clearly the focus of my attention at Saatchi Gallery's current show Gesamtkunstwerk: New Art From Germany I went to see today.  Her colourful 3-dimensional collaged installations explore areas of art, architecture and design.  Posed as a beautiful and grotesque requiem, each of Genzken's totemic sculptures is a monument of hope and mourning, referencing a shattered utopia.
