ELLEN KORTH: A TOUCH OF MEMORY
10 November 2021 until 11 February 2022

Opening reception: 5 November 2021 from 12 to 6 pm

“Ellen Korth’s first solo exhibition in Austria features an overview of her series and books: The Fabric of Time, The Rustle of Touch and Walks. In her works, the past is kept alive. This wonderful connection is carried by wafer-thin, traditionally made papers and books. This depiction of photography is a result of Korth’s fascination with Japanese art and culture. The three projects were shaped by her own life and the history of her family, a topic she has worked on in earlier works as well. For The Fabric of Time and The Rustle of Touch the artist photographed a collection of historical undergarments, then printed the photographs in black and white on translucent Japanese paper. They trigger that feeling in the viewer of a murky and unknown memory left behind after dreaming. The works of the series Walks were created during the Covid-19 pandemic. During that time, the artist took walks to the same location over a period seven weeks, photographing the flowers and weeds there, a wild mix of plants that were growing arbitrarily and which formed a visually appealing landscape. These projects are connected by the same objective: to visualize a place where everyone is able to lose themselves in self-introspection and trace their memories.”
