Art Practice Grant: NEUSTART Kultur

Art practice grant   I   NEUSTART Kulture Program   I   15 September – 31 January 2022

 

The grant is part of the NEUSTART KULTUR programme initiated by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and Media, which aims to mitigate the effects of the corona pandemic in the cultural sector.

 

My goal for this period was to work exclusively on large-scale drawings by applying different drawing techniques. This was a logical continuation of my previous work on smaller formats. It was crucial, thanks to the grant, that I was able to have enough art supplies throughout my work, so I felt fully free to work intensively, do research and explore different types of material and conduct the entire drawing process without the pressure that every single work must be perfectly done because of the looming impression that I might run out of material.

 

During the four-month period forty drawings (150 x 125cm each) were created.
