until 24.10. | #2839ARTatBerlin | Galerie Martin Mertens presents from 5th September 2020 the exhibition JE NE SUIS PAS SEULE with works by the artist Katrin Bremermann.
As the title of her third solo exhibition with us, Katrin Bremermann, who lived in Paris for a long time, has chosen the title of a poem by Paul Éluard “Je ne suis pas seule” (“I am not alone”).
When dealing with literature/poetry, she is interested in finding words that interest her, touch her emotionally or tell a story. They should raise questions and create expectations. This forms the basis for her work. Here it becomes clear that Katrin’s work is very emotional despite its formal rigour. She wants the respective work “to end so far that it remains unexplainable, but at the same time it is very present and independent”.
Katrin has repeatedly described her work in the studio as a laboratory-like situation. She engages in various reflections and experiments on forms, colours and boundaries. In doing so, she constantly explores new elements and materials and consciously seeks new technical challenges. For the first time in this exhibition, we are showing her works with acrylic glass, which have emerged from this testing of new materials.
This exhibition is based on Katrin’s development over the last few years, in which her wall objects have increasingly broken out of the traditional rectangular form and penetrated into the room
Also for the first time, we are also showing their new aluminium wall sculptures. Katrin’s statement “Actually I am a painting sculptress” becomes more understandable and clearer in this exhibition than before. She says: “There are rules of the game, memories, current events and idols, and then use my strength, my desire and my urgency to create an ideal reality. One does not need to explain anything. It is about seeing, about perceiving the whole, the space, the light and your own perspective. In this exhibition you can see works with new forms and formats. Experiments with forms and surfaces. Works that go into space. Older themes seen in a new way. Minimal optimisation. Poetic potentials become visible.”
