SOLO EXHIBITION – installation, photography, mixed media |

September 3 – October 23, 2010 | Wagner + Partner Berlin in association with Kunst & Wein

Akin to the French artist Sophie Calle, Natascha Stellmach is a storyteller who harnesses words and images in order to analyse, fictionalise and reassess. She successfully tackles challenging topics through her sense of the poetic, paired with intelligence and black humour. With Come Live in my Head Stellmach invites the visitor to explore the self in a very personal way. In the end there is indeed hope for fantastical dreams. Margret Uhrmeister

(Deutsch)
Wie auch die französiche Künstlerin Sophie Calle, ist Natascha Stellmach eine erzählende Künstlerin, die sich Wörter und Bilder zunutze macht, um zu analysieren, zu fiktionalisieren und neu zu bewerten. Dabei gelingt es ihr, durch ein Gespür für Poesie gepaart mit Intelligenz und trockenem Humor anspruchsvolle Themen anzugehen. Mit „Come Live in my Head“ lädt sie den Besucher auf eine sehr persönliche Weise ein, das eigene Selbst zu ergründen. Am Ende besteht die Hoffnung auf fantastische Träume.
