Intro
Lydia Hirte is a German artist living and working in Dresden. Graduated from the University of Applied Sciences Schwäbisch-Gmünd and the University of Applied Sciences (FHG) Pforzheim and with several international exhibitions, you can find Lydia Hirte's work in different publications and fairs. The artist is interested in the movement of lines and in the possibilities to influence them, creating sculptures that challenges the space and the materials used.

Statement

As an artist I am mainly interested in the movement of lines and my possibilities to influence them. By experimentally exploring and developing ways to provoke the resistance of the fine drawing cardboard and to push it to the limits I take a hand in the material, grasp it, and elicit unimagined forces and tensions from it. These I use to steer the lines, create spatiality and new shapes. 

Frozen movements
The pendants of German artist Lydia Hirte ... look misleadingly simple. What is more, it is impossible on the basis of a picture alone to estimate the scale of the little treasure bundles on her necklaces. The clean forms and colours conceal the effort and intensity involved in getting these trinkets into their finished state. however small the definitive ornaments may be, they put up quite a struggle when being forced into their straightjacktets. ...
Lydia Hirte declares her love of paper through the directness and tangibility of the material itself. The paper responds immediately to her touch; she feels the effect her fingers induce. In her quest for a strong image she allows herself to be guided by the materials's properties. ...
Because of the contortions in the pendants, their outward appearance is far from static. When the object has been fully torqued, it still looks loose and pliable. This is the power of Hirte's handiwork.“

Citation from: Frank van der Ploeg (catalogue of the Holland Paper Biennale 2010, Rijswijk, pp.53-54)


„In this collection of paper pendants Lydia Hirte manages to give us a different take on the curving line. Clamping and strengthening stacked pieces of card stock allows Hirte to create contorted shapes that flow and bend, suggesting subtle, graceful movement.“ 

Susan Lomuto, May 2010
