until 04.09. | #4342ARTatBerlin | Galerie feinart Berlin shows from 3rd August 2024 the exhibition Shadow Flowers by the artist Letizia Werth.

Letizia Werth is interested in drawing and its materiality as well as in the relationship between drawing and other media such as photography and video. Under the title “Shadow Flowers”, she summarises a series of monochrome works in which she transforms images of found anonymous — “lost” — photographs from private living spaces onto canvas in graphite and ink. In the process of leaving the photographic model, categories such as space, time, fiction and reality come to light in all their fragility.

“Drawing is an immediate process of assimilation and digestion […]. It is comparable to the flow of air when breathing in and out, pausing and letting go, and that is exactly how I stop time for a few moments and move into new pictorial worlds.” Letizia Werth has studied the influence of various media on perception in depth, from photography and video to X-rays and séances.

In Shadow Flowers, the boundaries between the spiritual and the physical, reality and fantasy, become blurred. On the one hand, we know that there are real authors, times and places of origin, but these are forever unknown, forgotten, erased. Where the scenes are turned into negatives and graphite and ink condense dust-like on the surface of the picture, there is an echo of the uncanny, the mysterious. Whoever took these photos must have been touched by something that was worth capturing. These works demonstrate the artist’s sensitivity to the poetry of temporality and the intensity of the unique yet fleeting moment.
