INA SANGENSTEDT, ARTIST

 

A central theme in Ina Sangenstedt's work is the common denominator between different kinds of creatures which are extremely similar on the one hand, but at the same time strongly differ from each other. She is interested in the animal, particularly with regard to its potential as symbol of society and culture. Animals play an important part in a variety of contexts to which the artist refers and whose language of form she quotes. By doing so, she creates cult objects which proclaim the exhibition space as a secular space of cult, in which people strive to find their faith as well as satisfy their yearning.

TANJA SELZER, ARTIST

 

Tanja Selzer transfers media images as well as her own photos and film stills onto the plain of painting. The original context of the images remains hidden, thus opening up an ambiguous field of associations. The real world appears transformed into an often merely fragmentary space. The scenes lure us into an indistinct world outside known society, whose inhabitants apparently prefer to remain among themselves; other scenes reveal fateful moments that defy conscious control and concrete classification.

ANNA TSIANOU, VISUAL ARTIST

 

Artifacts and actions and reasoning associated with them, are the main subject of my work. By Modifying, rearranging or duplicating objects, images or symbols I create and shape cryptic vocabularies of symbols or carriers of encoded Information. The Artifacts so created are fictitious, their forms are only apparently carrying codes. The apparent evidence of information they carry is thereby questioned. Their perception and interpretation by the on viewer is crystallized and made tangible.

 JULIA LIA WALTER, ARTIST

 

Julia Lia Walter's works are composed out of painting and video projections. Videos are projected onto paintings in such a way that it is barely visible where the painting ends and the video starts. The artist dissolves the boundaries of the media by creating connections through colours and forms. The cinematic sequences can be read as a commentary to the painting. All videos are screened in a loop, thus inviting the beholder to dwell in the endless presence of the video-projection-paintings.

MICHAELA ZIMMER, ARTIST

 

Traces of the performative appear almost palpable in both Michaela Zimmer’s constructed and densely textured canvases, as well as in their plain primed equivalents. The conceptual nature of her abstract paintings is evident in her sculptural use of PE film. Enhancing a remarkable oscillation of spatial awareness it points to a key issue in her work by exploring the different possibilities of the spatial conditions we move in and the images we create of these.
