With the double exhibition by Anna Barriball and Dirk Braeckman in the Maschinenhaus M1, the KINDL – Centre for Contemporary Art is presenting two artists who focus on the facets of the surface in the working process and deal with “imprints” on paper in different conceptual ways.
The British artist Anna Barriball (*1972 in Plymouth, lives in London) combines various media such as video, drawings, and photography in her work. Barriball is particularly interested in the sculptural qualities of paper, which she creates using wax textures and pencil drawings, for example, and reveals in relief-like impressions.
Dirk Braeckman’s (*1958 in Eeklo, lives in Ghent) black-and-white photographs have an enigmatic presence that the artist achieves not least through the specific surface texture. Using experimental techniques in the darkroom, he turns landscapes and interiors into timeless observations—often months or years after the pictures were taken.
