until 25.07. | #0070ARTatBerlin | 401contemporary presents from 5th June to 25th July 2015 at the exhibition + / – the works of Fiene Scharp and Ignacio Uriarte as a commentary on the interplay inherent in the constant process of “removing” and “adding”.
The work of both artists is non-representational – delicate, fine. It offers up nothing to the quick gaze. Through the use and application of materials such as paper, graphite, ink and hair, the pieces develop an organic presence and oscillate between drawing and object. They refer back to minimal art as well as to conceptual and concrete art in both, form and content.
Fiene Scharp’s works fascinate us with their constant, raster-shaped repetition of geometrical forms. The creation process is rigorously personal, manual repetition. Consequently, the viewer is captivated by the delicacy and precision of both her cut“drawings”, realized with a scalpel, and her graphite pieces with their most acute hand movements.
Ignacio Uriarte uses exclusively utensils from everyday life at the office for his pieces. Besides pencils and ink pencils, these are type writer works, in which he limits himself to the keys of +, – and %, creating pieces that are both strict and highly organic. His gradation drawings, on the other hand, impress us thanks to their tangible physical engagement with pen and paper.
Vernissage: Friday, 05th June 2015, 6 p.m.
