Heidi from twenty+3 (a converted art space in the front room of a Whalley Range terrace house) has been in touch about her latest exhibition, which opens today:
In White Wash, Gottschalk will be showing three untitled pieces. A 30-centimetre strip of thick white wax that includes the ceiling, wall and floor. A selection of A3 low relief works that use white and transparent stickers to create patterns and build up surfaces. A pile of white sticky dots stapled to the wall.
In Gottschalk’s work, objects become images become installations.The work is minimalist in inspiration but with a sensuality that references Eva Hesse. With a background in painting she subverts viewers expectations of painting and drawing. ‘Using paint, cardboard, stickers and printers’ waste paper, her work takes ordinary exhibition spaces and destabilises them,’ says the Berlin Museum Director and Mart Stam prize jury-member Jarn Merkert.
This is Gottschalk’s first UK exhibition. It’s open Saturdays 12-5pm, or by appointment, until March 2. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
