Week 1 Pascale Küng & Martina Walther
We got the chance for an exhibition in Glarus, CH
(“Zwischensaison”, 26.06. – 02.10.2015).
We are working with clay. The topic is about the paradise and the fragility about this pure, perfect, innocent and lovely situation – this absolutely perfection can break so easy, because mankind is unable to preserve the paradise, there will be always sins.
The “Zwischensaison” takes plays in a garden, which stands for the paradise. In this paradise are women and there will be sins.
The work of that exhibition links to our main project, but works independently as an installation for that garden.
The exhibition and our main project came out of the same theme. In week 2 we will start working with the main project. It`s about our interest on the swiss sagas: the exact moment, where something breakes apart and the human being shows his real aims, desires, wishes and fears.
Week 2 Pascale Küng & Martina Walther
We started sketching our main project: human emotions, spiritual abyss, inner conflicts, drives, wishes, feares and intentions. The atmosphere is heavy, nagging, ambivalent and heavy with meaning…
Week 3 Pascale Küng & Martina Walther
Progress with the drawings.
The clay-woman and the forbidden fruits get glazed and burned.
Working in the atelier of Edith Corrieri.
Week 4 Pascale Küng & Martina Walther
Progress with the drawings. We decided to set limits to the theme, and put our focus on the human relationships and love attachments. It’s a part of the original theme and contains all the human feelings in which we were and still are interested. We developed a good basement for the work and set the most important decisions for to go on working.
The clay work is completely done and ready for the exhibition
“Zwischensaison” in Glarus from 26.06.2015 – 02.10.2015.
Originally we planned to woodcut a poster for the clay-work at the “Zwischensaison”, but now it will be a 3D poster made out of clay directly on the wall. If you are curious about that stunning idea, see you in Glarus or check out our Facebook-Walls -> Pascale Küng -> Martina Walther
