This Sunday is reserved for the art in transformart. An all new art festival and show for painters and sculptors and other artists held in Berlin a week ago. I have already made a lenghty post about the location, which is exceptionally well chosen for young art. And stunningly beautiful.
But today it is the art, that caught my attention, when we were there.
Starting out with Anett Münnich. She makes delicate paper cuts from maps. Among other techniques she uses, these paper cuts in their three-dimensionality are really stunning.
Next is Steffen Blunk. His depiction of war scissures left moved me. He chose to hurt the wood on which he paints to show what he wants to tell.
Claudia Vitari stunned me to no end. She crystallised notes, drawings, face masks and so forth in resin and glass, housed in iron frames or steel boxes. Giving her works of the series LE CITTÀ INVISIBILI (about a Spanish radio station run by staff all diadgnosed with mental illness) and PERCORSOGALERA (about a prison and its inmates) a quality, depth and beauty, I have never seen before. One really has to see it in real, photographs can only give you a glimpse of the experience.
Oh, here’s a niceone from Agnes Brigitte Schröck. I really liked the title (and the picture, of course), the artist apparently has a great sense of humour.
Of course, my colleagues boyfriend can’t be missing from this post – Martin Heinig. He is a master scolar of Georg Baselitz and works in Berlin since the 80ies. I am not the biggest fan of Baselitz, but have to say, Mr. Heinigs own works were very impressive in their sheer size – some covering entire walls – and strenght.
Mari Poller exhibited an artwork made of sugar cubes painted in acrylic paint to visualize pixelated images. Another great idea!
And now follow a few pictures, I don’t know all that much of, but still liked. So I post them here. And this is just the painting part of the festival. Installations and sculptures are still to come.
