until 30.11. | #2645ARTatBerlin | Michaela Helfrich Galerie presents from 30th November 2019 the exhibition Angezettelt … with painings and monotypes by the artist Tina Engel.
The beginning of a canvas is the drawing of the longitudinal threads on the loom, which are called slips of paper. A new piece of fabric begins when it is warped. A play begins when the actor appears and imagines something into the room that is only visible through him and disappears again when he leaves the stage. An image begins when it leaves the painter and finds itself. Many a large text (textile !) begins on a small, empty piece of paper. A few longitudinal threads, an empty stage, the white canvas, the empty piece of paper, nothing more. One does not draw from the fullness, but from nothing.
„When I paint I can see myself walking around the corner I am painting, then the corner takes over the scene.“
Tina Engel, born. 1950, Actress and director, Schauspielhaus Zurich and Düsseldorf, Schaubühne Berlin, Renaissance Theater Berlin
