Exploration #1 was meant to be a normal exhibition. We just returned from a roadtrip through Europe but we felt, that an exhibition was not enough or too much at the same time. We weren’t ready to showcase something, but we were ready to show our work in progress.
The EXPLORATION #1 was about relationship
- Men – Women
We experimented with projections, wall objects and sculptures.
As a sculpture the human figure is Uwes main subject. Uwe created three pairs of sculptures. men and women, talking//fighting// ignoring//debating//admiring – each other.
Uwe never or rarely uses color in his work. We experimented with painting the sculptures (by Katrin). The sculpture groups were later on also part of experiments with image projections.
Katrin is a painter. Color is a crucial part of her work and her favored subject. She also likes to explore techniques wich are often related to craft and female work like knitting, enameling, embroiling and weaving.
Her embroidery hoops in this exploration deal with relationship. In over 20 hoops she included parts of an old Indian cushion cover with colorful parts, sewn together by Indian women in India.
Exploration #1 – Projection
Our center work was “LUMA”. A video loop by Katrin Bongard (2021) and a photo by Uwe Carow (2021)
Lastly we includes Uwes “Heads” in the Exploration ands combined them with works on the wall and projections.
Projections on Curtain
Later on we used the curtain, that was present in this space, for further projections.
