Luca Curci – What do you think about the concept of CONTEMPORARY VENICE EXTENDED? In which way did inspire you?

Maria Gyarmati – Venice itself is a very spectacular place that is perfect for artistic events. The Palazzo Flangini where CONTEMPORARY VENICE EXTENDED took place has one of the doors that leads straight to the water, water gives big energy and inspiration.

 

L. C. – Please tell me about your art/the artwork shown during our event.

M. G. – “StereoDance” is the first part of the stereo video project. The figure of the dancer is a hidden stereo image in each frame. The dancer is visible when viewed in the form of normal video, however, switching to stereo images, the frame area gains volume and we see only the ghost of the character in stereo space. As a child such stereo images seemed magical: we decided to revive them.

L. C. – Are your artworks focused on a specific theme?

M. G. – Most of my artworks are focused on the interactive effect. That could be documental project or surreal, but it always has a point when the audience can see it in own way, open it a bit more and look deeper.

 

L. C. – Did you style change over the years? How?

M. G. – I’m lucky, I can choose different art spheres and keep the same interactive effect. Few years ago I couldn’t imagine that will work on a serious documental project for example. And it is quiet dangerous experiment, cause filming have to go in Russia and government there is not so very tolerant to artists.

L. C. – What about your artistic research?

M. G. – Meeting different artists and participating different exhibitions change you and your style, inspire you to try something new. While the fresh understanding of yourself and your goals arriving, you choose the topics that are more close and important for real you.

 

L. C. – Are you interested in future collaborations with our organization?

M. G. – Sure, the organizers are very talented people, they choose really great places for the exhibitions, they are really helpful and provide a great artistic support.

 

L. C. – Do you think that this experience could be useful for artists and can contribute to increase personal background?

M. G. – It is definitely so.

Katharina Grosse. It Wasn’t Us

Art | August 4, 2020

Katharina Grosse’s paintings can appear anywhere: on a rubber boot, on an egg, on the crumpled folds of a cloth, along a railway line, on the beach, in snow, on a sculptural form, or across a façade and on the roof. Her large-scale works are multi-dimensional pictorial worlds in which splendid colours sweep across walls, ceilings, objects, and even entire buildings and landscapes. Central to Grosse’s artistic practice is this notion that painting takes place not just on canvas, but that it can also permeate every facet of our surroundings. For the exhibition "Katharina Grosse. It Wasn’t Us", the artist has transformed the Historic Hall of Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin, as well as the outdoor space behind the building, into an expansive painting which radically destabilises the existing order of the museum architecture.

tensions in the region. Childhood memories steeped in the drama of war and refugee life recur throughout his art, which embraces themes like home, nation and cultural identity through a variety of media ranging from drawing and sculpture to video, installation and even writing. However, he does not proclaim a rupture between the personal and intimate and the historical and social, but instead perceives a relationship and continuity to be found in his intervention for the Palacio de Cristal.
