Fiene Scharp

The grid principle is Fiene Scharp's artistic means. The fineness - the condition of her works. She transfers the two-dimensional drawings of grid papers of all kinds into the spatial by microscopic cutting out. With the almost complete removal of the white spaces, filigree net-like structures are created. These works are permeated by a tension that is quiet and only gradually perceptible: on the one hand, there is the ever-same structure of an industrially produced sheet; on the other, the repetition is disrupted by the minimal variance and tiny breaks in the cuts made by hand. However, these inevitable breaks, staggered curvatures and folds are not flaws, but delicate traces of the individual character of each sheet, which only want to be discovered when looking closely. The project for the "papier & klang" festival is still in the making, more information will follow.


Fiene Scharp was born in Berlin in 1984. She studied fine arts and literature at the University of the Arts and the Humboldt University in Berlin. In 2012 she received the Master Student Award of the President of the UdK; she was a scholarship holder of the Else-Heiliger-Fonds of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung and the Stiftung Kunstfonds. Her works have been shown in exhibitions in Europe, North America and Asia: Centre for Recent Drawing, London; Kunsthalle Bremerhaven; Kunstmuseum Stuttgart; Museum fuer Konkrete Kunst, Ingolstadt; Stedelijk Museum 's-Hertogenbosch (NL), among others. She was awarded the Paper Art Award in Gold at the art fair Paper Positions Berlin 2021.
