Harkawik is delighted to announce Marenne Welten’s third solo exhibition with the gallery, Until Someone Finds You.


Named after a line in the 1951 animated film Alice in Wonderland, the exhibition occupies a similar disorienting and fantastical dimension. The affective resonances of unheimlich, or the uncanny, layer thick onto Welten’s canvases. Its density does not bear the weight of the known, as if unearthing primordial meaning or illuminating the shadows of the repressed. The made-visible coagulation of direction and movement is rendered beyond the knowable. Instead, it becomes a near-purely formal investigation. And such an exploration warrants an ambiguity through which all passes, as Maurice Blanchot notes on death and poetic works. The destruction of the image is also its creation. Repetitious movement between the two points of simultaneous and progressive destruction and (re)construction becomes the means by which the subject formally emerges. Painting’s lyrical dimensions become expressive without occupying the status of direct expression. Thus, the painting is not but form while also irreducible to form.
