Photographer Renée Pötzscher and sculptor Aino Nebel are connected through their work with elementary materials: one transforms moonlight into ethereal forms, the other creates earthen structures full of poetry out of the kiln;

“Ceramics and photography seem to have nothing in common. Aino Nebel creates poetic sculptures out of the kiln. Renée Pötzscher leaves the exposure of her motifs to controlled chance. Both artists think sculpturally – create earthen structures from the material and banish the light in ethereal forms. earthen and light. The mystery of union moves between heaven and earth.” (Silke Tobeler, guest curator of the exhibition)

Aino Nebel. The objects of the sculptor, who was born in Berlin in 1972, arise from the combination of mineral materials such as clay, plaster, glass and porcelain with organic, transient and fragile materials such as blossoms, fruit, paper or sugar. The kiln firing allows self-sufficient sculptures to emerge from processes of softening, burning, crystallization and hardening, sometimes appearing like vessels, sometimes like natural formations, but in terms of form and surface structure they are too bizarre and idiosyncratic to be classified. The exhibition also shows a selection of drawings that provide further insight into the artist’s studio.

Renée Pötzscher. A heart of the oeuvre of the photographer and video artist, who was born in Austria in 1945, are moon and moonlight, which she uses as inspiration and means of expression for her examination of female identity, her own body, representation and image of the female as well as self-presentation. In her works, light and its opposite, darkness or night, function as a chiasmus of medium and content. The exhibition shows a selection of her moon exposures and photographs, her luminograms (experimental works with artificial light) and self-portraits. The photographic works are accompanied by free drawings and diary entries.
