Luca Curci talks with artist Jutta Obenhuber during Liquid Rooms – The Body Language exhibition in Venice on November 2015.
Jutta Obenhuber is a female artist based in Wiesbaden and Frankfurt am Main. She studied “Study of Painting” at Städelshule, Academy of Art in Frankfurt am Main. In 2000 she received the “Artist in Residence” award in Budapest and from 2006 to 2009 she moved in the USA. In 2013 Jutta received another “Artist in Residence” award in Belem, Brasil. Her artworks have been shown in numerous exhibition in Germany and abroad.

 Luca Curci – Can you talk about your personal experience in Venice? What did you think about the whole organization of the event, the artists’ selection, the communication management and opening nights?

Jutta Obenhuber – My personal experience in Venice was very good. The team was very friendly and competent.  I was not getting your criterias to the artists selection. The communication management was from the beginning on very good. I was very sad that I could not attend the opening night. I had to fly back in the morning of the opening.

L. C. – What do you think about the collaboration between It’s LIQUID and Ca’ Zanardi/Venice Art House?

J. O. – For me the collaboration of It`s liquid and Ca`Zanardi is very  good. Ca Zanardi is a beautiful old palace in an area that is not too touristic, which I prefer.

L. C. – Can you talk about the artwork you presented in Venice? How is it linked with the festival’s theme?

J. O. – The artwork I presented in Venice is a radical statement to painting. Normally the artist buys a canvas and then he starts to paint on it. I go the other way: after having bought the canvas I go into the other direction: I put off the horizontal strings of the canvas, also vertical strings, then I put in some new strings, in other colors. In a way I make the canvas even more naked, that is also the link to „the body language“ .

L. C. – What are you currently working on?

J. O. – Currently I am working on a series of works about the two rivers „Amazonas“ and „Rhine“.

L. C. – What is art for you?

J. O. – art for me is to work with sensuosness and in the same time to open thoughts and imagination.  I want to open the thoughts of the viewer in a direction of liberty. I want that the viewer feels a liberation.

L. C. – What do you think about International ArtExpo and It’s LIQUID organizations? Do you think they can represent an opportunity for artists?

J. O. – International Art Expo is an interesting, versatile organization. Yes I do think that they can represent a platform for artists. The artists have the oportunity to exhibit in another context.
