Correspondence|Kathrin Stalder Solo Exhibition on Paper

“Art is communication that links you and me.”~ Kathrin Stalder

立晴來自瑞士,她喜歡旅行、寫信,相信藝術是人與人之間的祕密通道,喚起我們已經遺忘的知覺或鮮少流露的情緒。紙張乘載的不僅有訊息,也訴說著一個個夢境。一次偶然她從抽屜裡拿出好友的舊書信,給了自己無限靈感,開始用紙張、縫紉機、用畫筆在信紙上留下新的痕跡……

這次受邀田園城市展出,立晴特別挑了15件作品,都與書本、紙張與通信有關,可以看到紙本物件的各種可能性。紙張是無限的空間,反射、速寫不同時期的自己。通信是對外、亦是對內聯繫、是一條沒有盡頭的線路,渴望找尋一顆心來對應。

Kathrin is from Switzerland. She likes to travel and make original hand-made mails to friends. She believes that art can be a connection between you and me; it will awaken our feelings and emotions that we seldom show. Once she realized that how much mails she had received from her best friend, then she got an idea to use them to create new artwork. For Kathrin, memory can always be looked at it again, and to be transformed into a new look.

For Garden City, Kathrin chose 15 works to show, including books, collages and sculptures. They are all made with paper, with sewing machine going over it.

Paper can build an endless space that reflects us in different times. Correspondence brings out a relationship with outside world, but also with an inner self. It’s an ongoing process like a thread of sewing machine that keeps going forwards.
