Rübe und Stapel
Surfaces, lines and colors merge into a multi-layered conglomerate.
Anna Holzhauer and Charlotte Mumm are showing new works, which they have specially developed for the exhibition ‘Rübe und Stapel’ at Galerie Coucou. With a carefully composed interplay of ceramic reliefs, paintings and site-specific installations, they question simultaneously the boundaries between space, surface and the body as well as intrinsic values and outer conceptions. A voluminous yellow convex form sticks its material presence towards the visitor and creates a confronting view. And in doing so discloses a different spatial dimension. This phenomenon repeats itself on different levels and tangible media like the multi-dimensional ceramic objects, reclusive but haptic paintings and structures made out of dried sliced potatoes and French fries. Experimental, sprawling structures offer the stage for sensual references to other spatial and painterly works in the exhibition. All the works in "Rübe und Stapel" have an odd somatic but solitary appearance. Every step, every glance and every thought can shift the existing spatial spectrum and creates a thought game of being and becoming.
