The patterns in Renata Palekcic's amorphous paper objects are abstract.
The Hamburg-based artist transforms the two-dimensional material paper through the intuitive-repetitive process of cutting into three-dimensional, expansive, organically abstract sculptures.
She thinks of and describes her installations and sculptures as 'three-dimensional drawing' in space.
Freehand, she draws lines with the cutter, sets recesses.
Violating cuts create voluminous and multilayered material formations. Irregularities, barely perceptible to the eye, are witnesses to the handicraft.
The sculptural works can be presented in different variations, constantly changed and developed through new contexts and spaces.
For the papier & klang festival, Renata Palekcic presents an installation of several cut objects made of recycled paper. In this new work, she also incorporates painterly components for the first time.
The site-specific installation seems to float in the exhibition space.
It will be tangible, walkable, audible and palpable for visitors.
