24.04.21 – 22.05.21 Online Viewing Room

(En)

In Helen Mirra’s artworks various media convene: textile, language, film and sound have participated in a conceptual meeting with classical genres such as sculpture, painting and drawing. Mirra has developed a reduced language of images and objects, accompanied by an abstract linking to our/her surroundings. She also creates references to a reality which lies outside of the work, reconstructing movement through time and space.

Gletscherbachfloß (Glacial-river-raft) is a summary of works from the past twenty-three years by Mirra that relate to water. Not only as a fluid or frozen element but also as a socio-poetic statement.

In Helen Mirras Kunstwerken verschmelzen verschiedene Medien: Textil, Sprache, Film und Ton haben sich an einer konzeptionellen Begegnung mit klassischen Gattungen wie Skulptur, Malerei und Zeichnung beteiligt. Mirra hat eine reduzierte Bild- und Objektsprache entwickelt, die mit einer abstrakten Verknüpfung zu unserer/ihrer Umgebung einhergeht. Sie schafft auch Bezüge zu einer Realität, die außerhalb des Werkes liegt und rekonstruiert Ihre Bewegung durch Zeit und Raum.

Gletscherbachfloß ist eine Zusammenfassung von Arbeiten aus den letzten dreiundzwanzig Jahren von Mirra, die sich auf Wasser beziehen. Nicht nur als flüssiges oder gefrorenes Element, sondern auch als soziopoetische Aussage.
