Mari Lena Rapprich: SEARCHING FOR CONTACT
She is interested in the ratio of image, sign and content of written language. Linking graphite drawing to the use of light and shadow she creates a complex system of displaying and hiding text. Experimenting with the limits of readability the beholders are asked to interact with the scene and explore their impact.
In “SEARCHING FOR CONTACT” she stages the relationship of the art work and its beholder as a negotiation process.
