Possible prelude to a revival of the Steingaden art scene?
This is what Corinna Ellner, Amrei Breidenbach, Emma Heckel, Loki Forster and Finn Christmann, who are currently exhibiting with many other artists at “El Carpintero”, wish for (from left).
A revival of the art scene in Steingaden?
Corinna Ellner, Amrei Breidenbach, Emma Heckel, Loki Forster and Finn Christmann, who are currently exhibiting their works together with many other artists in the “El Carpintero” in Steingaden, want that.
- When peace returns after stress, then the person is balanced and with himself.
Amrei Breidenbach gave this name “happy end” to her – untitled – art installation, which can currently be seen along with many others in the furniture, window and door shop “El Carpintero” in Steingaden.
“I wanted to show that two forces are constantly affecting us: movement and stillness.
unrest and calm.
One thing requires the other,” explains the 20-year-old, who is currently completing an apprenticeship at the vocational school for wood carvers in Oberammergau.
Around 20 exhibitors will be there
Her object consists of a ball of clay clamped in a nylon net and hanging freely over a transparent cushion.
The ball is pulled up using a crank with a thin rope hanging from it.
If it falls, the shock of the soft, water-filled base causes a vibration that is transferred to a play of colors on the ceiling by means of a sophisticated light construction.
The colorful patterns tremble for a while, but quickly settle down again.
Exactly the cycle that has done it to Breidenbach.
For a good week she was busy with the preparations, drafts and production.
"Let's see if and how it works"
The Steingadenerin is one of around 20 exhibitors.
Works in a wide variety of styles are on display, including paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures and other installations.
But it's not just about art: the house on Ammergauerstraße in Steingaden could in future blossom into the new, long overdue meeting place for the regional art scene.
In any case, that is the secret wish of the prospective sculptress Breidenbach: “Let's see if and how it works.
What is certain is that we need a place, a place where many young, creative people come together, a place where people meet and enjoy life,” she said at the vernissage.
She wanted to continue the tradition of Marion Werner in the "Wernerhaus" in Steingaden, who had organized exhibitions for a long time and exuded a special charm, especially with her art weekends.
Since the doors closed there in May 2019, the art scene in the 3,000-strong community with its 53 districts has been virtually orphaned, eking out a shadowy existence in private rooms.
A situation that should be a thing of the past as soon as possible, as Breidenbach would like: "We want to get going again!"
