A pictorial journey through Richard Wagner’s Opera “The Ring of Nibelung”

Analogies with the fundamental principles of life united with the universal.

In Bruni Heym’s work, color, texture, icons speak, as well as the choice of format as a pictorial medium.

For her, art has no pre-established rules, there are no borders. Her art is born from inner silence, it materializes, it becomes visible in the now.

Her works radiate sensual intensity and reveal the artist’s great pleasure in experimenting with different materials. Surfaces, often with large reliefs, draw the viewer’s gaze into the depth of the image, there, where silence falls again. The circle closes. Interpretation is up to each one.

“The Ring of Nibelung”

You are invited to take a visual and sound journey through the drama of four epic operas that contain elements of German mythology such as the “Song of the Nibelungs”, a medieval work. These operas are: The Gold of the Rhine (Das Rheingold), The Valkyrie (Die Walküre), Siegfried and The Twilight of the Gods (Götterdämmerung).

The visual works are guided or threaded by the musical pieces, from which they originate, and the libretto of the opera, from the Gold of the Rhine to the Twilight of the Gods. The titles of the works correspond to the text of the libretto and thus to the musical piece of the opera.

I look at the female characters in particular:

“Brünnhilde – Valkyrie – Wife – Woman of the Future”

Wagner’s attitude towards women not only reflects the different roles assigned to the sexes in the 19th century, but also a profound conflict that Wagner tried to resolve throughout his life.
