In the interplay of drawings and photographs, the exhibition not for sale combines three positions on the subject of "water". The real images and imaginations are based on our human knowledge: Nature cannot be used indefinitely without causing damage. Man-made climate change has long since proven this in its manifold effects, such as rising sea levels or water shortages in many parts of the world due to global warming.
Antonia Bisig lets her large-format drawings "counted" float from the ceiling into the room in a sensory experience, loaded with heavy content despite the apparent lightness of the work. Her haunting message is in all her works shown here: Water is not negotiable.
Doris Hinzen-Röhrig dedicates her pictorial arrangements of drawings and smaller photographs to the endangered ecosystem of the world's oceans, with a focus on dying coral reefs. Her works oscillate between aesthetic exaggeration and questioning.
Silvia Sinha's photographs reveal ambivalence in our emotional relationship to water: We are attracted by its natural beauty; we find it refreshing and calming; we fear it and we need it. Either way, water deserves our responsible use.
