Entre Deux - a French-German exhibition about memories at Städtische Galerie, Offenburg.


Entre Deux is a program of two exhibitons, showing the work of ten artists connected to Baden or the region of Strasbourg, Solweig de Barry, Jean-Baptiste Defrance, Elias Errerd, Nathalie + Alexander Suvorov-Franz alias "Arrtist Duo“, Johannes Mundinger, Pio Rahner, Marion Sautter, David Sibieude and Haleh Zahedi.
The first part was a a plain air exhibition at the Jardin des Deux Rives in Strasbourg, France.

Here´s the second edition taking place in Germany. Organized and curated by Luc Demissy and Patricia Potrykus it deals with memory. I approached the topic from two sides. In my paintings i recalled early memories, my childhood perspectives on political/social events. A second part is a collection of drawings by inhabitants of Offenburg i had asked to draw a certain sculpture in public space from their memory.

I remember having been at my paternal grandparents' fields as a child, harvesting potatoes. However, self-sufficiency was discontinued soon after, the effort no longer worthwhile, given the availability in the supermarket.
The egg business run by my mother's family for several generations once supplied restaurants and shops within a wider region. It was closed down in the 1990s because competition from supermarkets and discounters made the business unprofitable.

On the way to Berlin, where my father lived for a few years at that time, we went by train through what was then the GDR. I remember the bright yellow of the wheat or canola fields and the threatening border control and guards on the train.

In the early 1990s, appeared an unusual, strange-looking poster at the bus stop in the village we were living. It depicted several rows of search photos, with one word printed boldly above: "Terrorists", and below, a little smaller but no less threatening: "Beware of firearms!".

On the bridge to my hometown there is a pair of two sculptures standing on both sites of the street. I have asked inhabitants of Offenburg to draw this “Stadttorzeichen” by artist Werner Pokorny from their memory.

It was sad to hear that he died during the time of the exhibition. So my tribute to him turned out to be a little farewell.

A third body of work is this sculpture in front of the gallery. Solweig de Barry, Elias Errerd and me transformed a wall we had painted for the summer exhibition at the Jardin des Deux Rives in Strasbourg into this installation to be moved and rearranged by visitors.
