until 22.04. | #3816ARTatBerlin | Kuckei + Kuckei shows since March 10th 2023 the exhibition „destrukt konstrukt“ with works of the artist Fiene Scharp.
Dissecting, dismantling, exposing, opening, dissolving – segmenting, reassembling, overlaying, layering.
In her third solo exhibition at Kuckei + Kuckei, Fiene Scharp shows new paper cuts, drawings and objects that move in the field of tension between construction and deconstruction. Her materials are antiquarian grid papers, millimetre and logarithm papers or pattern sheets.
By taking the papers apart and then recombining and bundling them, she creates three-dimensional structures, linear drawings and organic networks. The results are works in which both the destructive process of creation and the constructive moment leave traces and new complex compositions become visible.
One of the exhibited groups of works consists of compact Plexiglas boxes in classic Din A4 and A3 format. These objects contain several paper cuts staggered one behind the other and separated from each other by glass panes. She uses differently coloured graph paper, accounting pages or gridded forms as the basis for these papercuts. With a scalpel, the artist cuts out the spaces in between so that fine grids are created, which, however, are also repeatedly injured by the process of cutting and interspersed with barely visible “flaws”. The layering of several paper cuts creates spatial structures with open spaces that open up the possibility of looking at the layers below. The rhythm of the grids and the broken regularity are reminiscent of close-meshed fabrics, architectural façades, or allow associations with systems and cells.
Another group of works combines various antiquarian grid papers, which Fiene Scharp joined together to form a paper and then processed with a scalpel. The grouping and connection creates a kind of cluster, a composite of diverse systems of order and structure, which floats like a linear drawing in front of the background of the picture.
In a series of four black paper cuts, the artist first created a grid drawing on paper using stamps and tracing ink. The irregularity of the printed image creates imperfect, organic networks. The white areas of the paper were then cut out, leaving only the black grid drawings.
Fiene Scharp, born in 1984 in Berlin, studied Fine Arts and Literature at the University of the Arts and the Humboldt University in Berlin and received the Master Student Award of the President of the University of the Arts in 2012. She was a scholarship holder of the Stiftung Kunstfonds Bonn, the Konrad Adenauer Foundation, the Dorothea Konwiarz Foundation and the Künstlerhaus Schloss Wiepersdorf. In 2021 she won the Paper Art Award and was a laureate of the Losito Art Prize. In recent years, she has taken part in numerous national and international exhibitions – including at the Museum für Konkrete Kunst Ingolstadt, the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart, the Kunsthalle Bremerhaven, the Gustav-Lübcke-Museum Hamm, the Centre for Recent Drawing (UK) and the Design Museum den Bosch (NL), or the Musée Charmey (CH). Her works are represented in public collections such as the Kupferstichkabinett der Staatlichen Museen zu Berlin, the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart, the Sammlung Ritter, the Museum für Konkrete Kunst Ingolstadt and the Haus des Papiers.
