In her works, Isa Melsheimer deals with architectural and urban spaces, including their formal language, functional history, and social significance. Her materials are heterogeneous: heavy, hard, and resistant materials such as glass, concrete, and ceramic are combined with embroidered curtains, textile masks, and even ensembles of living plants. The finely crafted and “handmade” always plays a role in her objects and installations. Since the 1990s the artist has also created gouaches that function as an architectural archive, in which she uses found photographs to illustrate the structures and functioning of built spaces.

 

For her exhibition at the KINDL – Centre for Contemporary Art, Isa Melsheimer engages in depth with the exhibition space M2, traces its energy flows, and places her objects like markings within the architecture.

 

The exhibition is curated by Kathrin Becker.
