until 22.04. | #1157ARTatBerlin | WICHTENDAHL GALERIE presents from 17th March 2017 the exhibitions “silent rising” by the artist Aja von Loeper and “transition” by the artist Eva Walker.
Aja von Loeper needs a white sheet of paper, a cardboard and a special wooden tool she designed to create her relief-like “white sheets”. With strength and sensitivity she is working on the paper until it bulges and its structure gets exposed. Elevations arise which appear like mountainous massifs with glaciers and rocks, quiet and covered with deep snow, powerful and effervescing at the same time. Aja von Loeper (*1971) lives and works in Nuremberg/Germany.
In her drawings and etchings, Eva Walker deals with the issue of how images can transfer knowledge. She explores how knowledge on the one hand can be established by replicating images and on the other hand revised, modified and eventually discarded by overwriting or omitting. Thus, putting layer over layer and leaving the work progress and the ruptures of the paper viewable are main characteristics of her work. Eva Walker (*1981) lives and works in Leipzig/Germany.
