until 04.05. | #2394ARTatBerlin| Galerie Inga Kondeyne – Raum für Zeichnung shows from 22. March 2019 an exhibition by the artists Johannes Regin and Aja von Loeper.
Johannes Regin provokes our vision with drawings that are often not perceptible at first glance. His works invite us to take a close look and to look through overlapping fragments of traces. Even the smallest deviations, tension shifts in the rhythm of his dot grids, leaking old traces of colour and the remains of signs can move into our consciousness. Regin gets involved with the material he chooses. He immediately knows how large his innumerable dots have to be, recognizes whether they have to be drawn or painted on or whether they have to be engraved, punched or chiseled into the material. Found objects are a counterpart for him, he looks into their stories. Lineal cracks, gaping fractures – he brings all these levels together in their complexity with his exaggerations. Gently touching or set hard, it will evoke a state of suspension. In contrast, the grid dots can rhythmically become flooded waves. The memory traces of our own network resonate, they are not fixed. Regin increasingly undermines his own meticulous set of rules with traces he has created himself. Strong colours come into play from the edges. He thus challenges further movements of his own.

Aja von Loeper needs a white sheet of paper, a cardboard and a wooden tool developed by her to create her relief-like “white leaves”. She works on the paper with a lot of power and sensitivity until it bulges and partially reveals its structures. Elevations emerge that appear like tanbirgs with glaciers and rocks. They appear quiet and deeply snow-covered, at the same time powerful and effervescent.
