NINA ANNABELLE MÄRKL
MORPHOSES
OBJECTS AND DRAWINGS

 

Nina Annabelle Märkl creates drawings, sculptures, and installations with continually transitioning media and perspectives. It is observation that makes a drawing into a sculpture or space, or turns a sculpture in an installation into part of a drawing. 

The artist creates intermediate states that show things in their possible forms — similar to a kaleidoscope — developing images and spaces that challenge the observer’s perceptual habits by creating stimulation and thus opening up sensual new possibilities to contemplate the things that exist in our world.

Shapes that initially appear to be abstract are actually elements that create a bring relationship between the observer and the drawing. These objects can be understood as spaces, landscapes, plateaus, outsourced displays of human emotion that then become part of the narrative. The images and arrangements suggest ideas regarding the permeability of humanity and its circumstances, people’s external and internal spaces, with an approach that is observational, selective, inspirational, and motivated by bringing things together. The simultaneity of opposites — proximity and distance, permeability and delimitation, creation and dissolution — is a determining criterion of Nina Annabelle Märkl’s work.

The images, whether an installation, arrangement, or drawing, stimulate the viewer, reveal something new, and trigger questions.

ELMIRA IRAVANIZAD
GATE
OBJECTS

 

Originally from Iran, Elmira Iravanizad now lives in Berlin and creates art set subtly on the verge between painting and sculpture. The often almost monochrome image surfaces of Iravanizad’s paintings are often broken by color and shape formations that imbue the images with structure and accentuation. At the same time, sculptures with forms that could have been extracted from painting emerge. They seem to grow out of a wall, or lie prone on the floor, detached from any reference. The sculptures are usually made of metal and ceramic, a combination of two very different materials, with the ceramics often assuming a nearly flowing character. The objects, once mostly black, have been increasingly infused with bright yellow since Iravanizad’s arrival in Berlin. For the artist, this color represents the cultural differences between Iran and Germany.
