»The world is everything that is the case.«
They are usually red – the installations and large-format drawings by Brigitte Waldach. Her figures move through an architecture or landscape delineated with just a few strokes, often accompanied by words, sentences or whole clouds of text. These are passageways between withdrawal and reality, in which a web of thoughts, associations and hinted stories seems to enwrap the figures and keep them from falling into the abyss. But falling – from a solidly circumscribed space into the void, from a tangible reality into a world of imagination – is a central motif in Waldach’s work, whose major theme is the emotionalized settings that can be found in the history of culture and media.
A master student under Georg Baselitz, Waldach has made a name for herself with exhibitions in Berlin, New York, Copenhagen, Hamburg, São Paulo and Los Angeles. Her works can be found in institutions including the Albertina in Vienna, the Århus Art Museum, the Museum of Prints and Drawings, part of the National Museums of Berlin, and the Berlinische Galerie.
