Beschreibung - English
Uta Weber's new colourful works on paper present the act of travelling as such. One might be of the opinion that quickly drawn sketches would be better suited to this purpose. Yet the flat, two-dimensional and exact nature of the drawing, executed using oil crayons on card, does not contradict the act of recording transient moments, passing landscapes, the traces of planes in the sky or strangely empty waiting rooms. These works on paper are reminiscent of a film still, yet also of the silkscreen prints of early Pop art, evoking a quietness and composure of travelling which certainly does not exist in quite that way. It seems as if “the traveller found herself in a kind of time out, in a state of passiveness, which releases her for a certain time from any kind of connection and responsibility.”
Silke Immenga, Cologne
