ABOUT

Olaf Nagel, Stuttgart, 2007

Details

Through her artistic activity Inge Gutbrod has been exploring the phenomenon of TRANSLUZENZ for years. TRANSLUZENZ should be understood as the liminal space between opacity and translucence that can best be characterised as diaphanous. This exploration is achieved through various means and materials, yet, the artist’s preferred medium has been wax for many years. This medium of choice is supplemented by illuminants, dyes and paper (not to mention other interesting components such as photographs, steel beams and chocolate lentils). By employing these means Inge creates unique pieces, sculptural ensembles and, ideally, whole spaces. She consistently aims to render an existing, physical space transcendent and open, not by cutting out windows and doors or by breaking down walls but by transgressing these physical boundaries in the realm of the imaginary.
