Bettina Bach / Calling
Opening: 25/06/2004 Closing: 30/07/2004
Bettina Bach has built her own universal in which the description “wordless” is of great importance. Her world is made out of harmony and peace of mind where every verbal or textual description would harm the complex-intimate atmosphere she creates. (Actual Art, Jan. 2003).
The objects that Bettina Bach uses are “simple everyday things found on the street, at the bottom of drawers, the last threads off the spool. Leftovers from the market, from around the house, the remains of memory and existence”. (Alissa Walser, Collagene Fragmente). The composition of all elements creates an atmosphere of reminiscence.
The concrete transform to something volatile, elusive. Bach is fascinated by unexpected situations which results are surprising. By unplanned process she creates a “world” full of associations; the components of installation are unified, consolidated and directed by the nature of the space.
