Introduction by Dr. Stefan Hartmann, Art Historian, Augsburg

Brigitte Heintzes works were developed after a work stay in Bulgaria.

The works of Kathrina Rudolph consist of forty Collages and corresponding with it forty drawings of ink and colourpencil on large sheets of tracing paper

The Collages tell stories of our everyday life. In the drawings of the tracing paper series they are translated and continued.
In that matter the original Collage-drawing is put on the bottom part of the sheet, whereas the backside-drawing of the Collage is on the upper part, the parts of it seeming not belonging together and  accidental like unfitting puzzlepieces.
Surprisingly though there can always be found a relationship between those two sides, they seem to be corresponding and one image is continuing the story of the other one.
The series is presented hanging on transparent ropes whithin the room, making use of the translucent character of the drawings on the tracing paper.

Introducion by Dr. Gertrud Roth- Bojadzhiev, Art Historian, Augsburg

Kathrina Rudolph is showing new works in the City Hall of Stadtbergen: Works On Paper and Paintings.
During a workstay in Finland in the summer of 2015 the series "Greens" was developed. There are 6 sheets of an old tapestry found in the wardrobe of the residency- on which she applied many variations of Blues, Greens, and Browns into the leafpattern of the tapestry. As a manifestation of light situations during different times of the day and different views from the house these images are meant as an approach to the subject of landscape painting.
During the same time there were made the small Pop- Up Stages, their images cut out from old Finnish journals of the 60s to 80s, telling in a funny way the story of two artist friends during their workstay in the same residency.
In the series "New works on Paper" Press - inspired by the technique of screen prints of the Pop Art Era- photos, mostly Film Stills from Newspaper- reviews  were enlargened and painted with eggtempera with means of cut out patterns on Paper.
In the series of the "Collages put into Scene" selected works from the series of the "Collages" were transformed into relief-like structures using tinfoil, telling stories of  human beings and their relationships.

Kathrina Rudolph "Image Of Time- Newspaper Images"

Gallery Arja Decker and Veerle Marissen in Lebensraum Kunst
Dorfstr. 4
85662 Hohenbrunn

Kathrina Rudolph mainly works with press fotos from the "Süddeutsche Zeitung", Munich.
In this exhibition new large-scale paper works are shown besides some series of her former works.
In these she uses techniques which come from the workshops of the old masters of the late medieval ages. They are made with gesso, engraving and bole gilding. In these images she deals with the subjects of war and trauma, political power and the fate of the individuals.
In her new work the subject has changed. Often she uses images of film- stills from published film reviews as a symbol of the attitude of life in our time.
They are made with egg tempera on paper in several variations of color and seem like wood cuts, at the same time they relate to Pop Art prints.
Also she shows  the series "paperballs", which is an installation out of 70 balls made of paper which carry drawings of images of  leading women from politics, literature, art and society from press fotos of newspapers, making a comment to the image of women as it is shown in the daily press of our time.

Women from Bangladesh

The project: April to May 2007

When I came to Bangladesh in 2007 I had in mind to do a project about a series of portraits of women from Bangladesh.

One year ago I had visited the country for the first time. I was on a visit to see my son, who was doing a volunteering with a German organisation who works together with partner organizations in Bangladesh.He was living in a village in the country, getting to know social field work there.

When I was accompanying him during these visits I was very much impressed by how these women were living and how they were maintaining their lives. Their appearance seemed to me in no way oppressed in spite of their hard lives. They have a very upright attitude, even and soft movements, their behaviour is calm and friendly, they often laugh, they take care of their appearance, their hair and clothes. They are all wearing colourful saris with beautiful luminous patterns.

Since this did not go out of my mind, I decided to prepare a project in which I wanted to get to know more about these women, how they were living and what they were thinking about their lives. I wanted to make photos of them and take interviews. Later, back in Germany these photos should serve me to make the portraits.

This I could do with the help of a woman artist, Syeda Farhana, whose work I had seen the year before, and who offered me to accompany me into the villages and do the translations.

So I was able to take interviews and photos from women with different social background and professions.

When I came to the villages, mostly the women were very poor. They had not been able to go to school and had been all their lives after their marriage only in the place where their in-laws were living. They were working in the house and could not do anything else because they had not learned anything else and their husbands would not allow it.

But also I got to know women of the middle class, who were very educated and dedicated to doing a job, women who decided not to do a job, women who were artists and living a very independant life.

As Farhana was doing these interviews in a very experienced and open minded way, the women trusted her and were also very open minded with their responses, therefore I am very grateful.

Thus I was able to get to know how the women were seeing themselves and their situation, what they were thinking about family life and their aspirations, hopes and fears.

I am very much grateful to them that they let me take part to this and widened my knowledge and insight towards their lives.

Kathrina Rudolph

This was the last exhibition of raum 500 before the project had to close down as a result of the closure of the whole building at Blumenstrasse 28.

In the same way dissolution has become the subject of the installations of the four artists:
For their objects and sculptures they use worn clothes, that are swinging through space, stinking fags embedded in odours of beewax, created a floating universe of women who maintain - really or only in our thinking?- the world, formulate projections transcending material and immaterial world and build  accessible enclosures as locations for our dreams and desires.
The shape they use for their presentations is designed as the ultimate shape of endlessnes and perfection, mirroring presence of beginning and end, rejection and enclosure at the same time.
