Antje Guske

In her works moments of installation–like and mainly serial moments are merging with her personal childhood references filled with a world of images in her mind. Strange stage–like objects are overdrawn with floral ornaments or are disfigured through carefully gold–plated surfaces.

The appearing three–dimensionality and haptics of her work are cheating the observers eye and challenge him to give up on his previous viewing habits. Antje Guskes wall installations and objects are drafting clues to things that are not present. Her picture–objects are questioning die mysteriousness of the world by uncovering hidden correlations.
