Brigitte Waldach: STURZ / FALL
»The world is everything that is the case.«
They are usually red - the installations and large-format drawings by Brigitte Waldach. Her figures move through an architecture or landscape delineated with just a few strokes, often accompanied by words, sentences or whole clouds of text. These are passageways between withdrawal and reality, in which a web of thoughts, associations and hinted stories seems to enwrap the figures and keep them from falling into the abyss. But falling - from a solidly circumscribed space into the void, from a tangible reality into a world of imagination - is a central motif in Waldach's work, whose major theme is the emotionalized settings that can be found in the history of culture and media.
