Here are some impressions from my recent exhibition “Papier. Los!” (Paper. Go!) at the Old Jailhouse in Freising. From Jan 27 to Feb 4 the space was filled with works from paper. I was there with my artist friend Eva-Maria Bischof-Kaupp, who presented new drawings and prints and many threedimensional pieces. I showed works with altered books, especially Dante’s “Divine Comedy”, new pieces from newspaper and also the recent occupation with cracks in the road that I conserved on paper.
I am fascinated by the language of the human budy. Through drawing I repeat the gestures and the expression of the model in my own voice – sometimes hesitant and loose, sometimes energetic. Every technique adds a new dialect and subtly alters the message. For the group exhibition “naked lines” I used (among other media) wire and thread for drawing. A bunch of thanks to the many visitors and to the eleven other artists who contributed to an exciting exhibition!
Yesterday we were installing our works and today they can already be seen: “Green Stuff” opens the doors of the Old Jailhouse in Freising. My concrete-paper-pots have their premiere and I am also showing my book installation “the story goes on” for the first time in public.
Other artists showing their works in the group exhibition are Andrea Schuster (Illustration), Dietrich Ebersbach (textile collage), Gabriele Strehlau (painting), Leander Dolisni- Wennige (sculpture), Marion Birkholz (Mixed Media) und Reinhold Adscheid (photography).
The exhibition rooms on the first floor are open on Wed and Thur from 2 to 6 p.m., on Friday from 4 to 8 p.m. and on the weekend from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. One of us artists will always be present.
The vernissage takes place on Friday the 13th of June at 6 p.m.
