“Giving an overview of my entire work is not so easy; it lives from diversity but also from a certain continuity.
I am interested in processes related to materials that pose a challenge and at the same time are aesthetic. It is the translucent, the transparent, the light and the shadow, but also the physicality that emerges from the line. The undisguised gaze that reveals processes and reveals different levels. “ – Dorothea Reese-Heim
Three work areas that deal with perception and viewing habits will be shown in the XC.HuA Gallery Beijing.
An installation focuses on images from the daily press, which are combined into an archive and a space of memory.
In a second installation, the mirror image 'Spiegelfechter' (mirror fencer) is portrayed and at the same time, the view of the sky is brought to earth.
The third part deals with the memory of words. Writing as a metaphor for thoughts and stories. 'Versiegelte Schriften' (Sealed Writings) are books that can never be read or opened. “ – Dorothea Reese-Heim.
