Maria Tackmann – Signs

13 January – 08 April 2018

The ostensibly minimalist material arrangements by Maria Tackmann (born 1982, Wattenwil, Switzerland, lives in Karlsruhe) consist of diverse found objects, which the artist located in nature as well as in the urban space – stones, tree bark, broken glass, remnants of fabric or pieces of wood. Assorted according to formal criteria such as size, colour or surface structure, she constructs installations from these individual elements that recall coded classification or semiotic systems. In her drawings as well, Tackmann examines the material traces of objects and places in sensitive tableaus.
