MADE IN KOLN:
ARTISTS' GROUP EXHIBITING AT THE VIEW SEEKS CONNECTIONS WITH LIVERPOOL
We are a group of committed artists from Cologne. We work with different
materials: clay, cloth, metal, glass and timber. We came together
as a group joined by the contrasting and stimulating experience of
developing our ideas, not only by fantasy and intuition, but also
by the characteristics of the material we work with. It is this element
of tension that connects us. We say about our work.
"The idea of my art- proceeding from a geometric form - is to
create abstract sculpture" (Angelika Kissing). "Sophie Kreidt
(top right) finds many materials inspiring for her work: stones, earth,
rusty scrap-iron, timber... Her sculptures give them a new order and
significance." "Textile material - coloured cloth which
I dye myself - speaks to me in a very direct special language"
(Inge Hueber). "Tying and un-tying shapes-the process of solidification
and form of a pliant and versatile medium" (Veronika Moos-Brochhagen).
"In my work I use man-made and natural materials in combination
with glass, creating contemplative statements on protection and fragility"
(Helga Reay-Young, above).
Through our work we seek artistic exchange in Liverpool, the first
and oldest sister-city of Cologne. In the year 2002 we will celebrate
the 50th anniversary of this partnership. It is our aim to present
our group of artists and their work in 2000 in order to establish
contacts in Liverpool for 2002. Personal interactions will reveal
both parallels and contrasts in traditions and techniques. We look
forward to an artistically fascinating creative cooperation. The stimuli
from one region promote the ideas of the other region. We would like
to contribute and be part of the growing European cultural exchange
by developing a long-term concept of working and exhibiting together.
about future collaborations projects
In October, 2000 we have joined the initiative
"Eight days a week" and in the gallery "The View"
in Liverpool have organized an exhibit of our works. During our stay
in Liverpool we had a meeting with Liverpool colleagues where we got
to know ourselves and attached contacts. Each of us inhabitants of
Cologne has found a partner with whom she worked up to May, 2002 on
an artistic project.
