Berührungspunkte by Fritz Maierhofer and Margit Hart
Exhibition / 22 Apr 2017 - 15 May 2017
Alja & Friends
The work of Fritz Maierhofer and Margit Hart looks very different at first sight - Margit’s pieces seem geometrically thought-out, and Fritz’s created almost out of a belly feeling. On closer inspection, both are very picturesque and reveal the common inspiration source: nature.
Fritz Maierhofer is impressed by the dramatic and constantly changing atmosphere of mountain landscapes which he transforms into both brooches and wall objects.
The first brooches from 2013 were made in Cherasco, Italy. He formed mountains from strong fibrous paper and put accents with watercolor. Since 2015 Fritz Maierhofer has been working in iron and industrial enamel.
Margit Hart shows two groups of works - “Fil d’Ariane” from the year 2015 and “Off Shore” currently evolving. Fil d’Ariane refers to Greek mythology, to Ariadne, the daughter of King Minos, who gave Theseus a ball of thread so that he could find his way out of the labyrinth of Knossos.
With these pieces Margit Hart is asking questions like: Will we find new ways in the transient labyrinth? Are we ready to strike out in new directions? Or will we lose ourselves in confusion and disorientation?
"Off Shore" is a continuation of earlier work which encompasses nature and scouts out space, time and the unknown, spontaneous drawings being the starting point of the pieces.
