Open Studio by Marie Pietsch, Andreas Selg, and Bernhard Hegglin, and Anna Sorokovaya
Marie Pietsch stayed in the Sitterwerk’s guest studio for two months. At the open studio, the Hamburg-based artist is presenting the works created here. Everyday objects, slightly exaggerated, representative, pathbreaking, confusing. Cloth banners with atmospheric conditions in the indoor space, threaded onto oversize needles, glass wind indicators, highly precarious, neither decoration nor function. These and other confusing and sundry things are taken to an extreme and tested out in the artist’s work.
Since the beginning of May, the Zurich-based artists Andreas Selg and Bernhard Hegglin have occupied the Sitterwerk studio and worked on individual as well as joint projects. Previous works serve them as a reference for future ones. At the open studio, they are thus presenting past works, combined with intermediate results that make reference to the ideas and processes that have arisen in the dialogue. Both artists concentrate in a broader sense on the topic of interior space and inwardness: In Selg’s work, this pair of concepts is interleaved with one another in drawings, while Hegglin transforms chairs into kinetic figures. At 6 p.m., Andreas Selg will provide insights into his artistic practice.
In 2022, Anna Sorokovaya was in the Sitterwerk’s guest pavilion. During the open studio, she will present excerpts from her serial photographic work created between 2014 and 2022 at the Kunstbibliothek.
