Abuschenko-Matwejewa, Ina


Good Condition

  • Nuanced coloured paper objects: Ancient concept of relief as a relation of surface movement to depth movement.
  • From impression to expression in the sense of Concrete Art.
  • The objects reveal the tense relationship between body and world as a relief that differentiates itself on both sides: Between perception and sense of touch, between emergence and disappearance.

"... Ina Abuschenko's swinging 'Lichtbilder', which she lets correspond with texts by Tanja Langer, are also a transitional element: Both are multiple translations in the sense of crossing from impression to expression, to artistic form. With the nuanced coloured paper objects, the age-old concept of relief is subtly and freely reanimated as a relationship of planar movement to deep movement and thus from the second dimension to the third. The objects lead directly into the tension-filled relationship between body and world as a relief that differentiates itself on both sides, floating between perception and sense of touch, between emergence and disappearance. Ina Abuschenko's works play with the enigma of before, behind, in between, hiding and opening. Her folds, which take the Norwegian landscape as their starting point, open up and unfold multi-layered questions about our perception, exploring the intricate relationship between model and image, between mimesis and creation. And it seems as if the event of perception is only then played out in the multi-layered, diaphanous pictorial formations, which - again and again - occurs as a similarity in the dissimilar, which manifests 'the power of one's own creation' in visible forms.
While looking at Robbe-Grillet's novel Die Jalousie, a text made up of what we have seen, memories, hallucinations and dreams, shimmering in the light, it occurred to me. The text works with constant changes of perspective, with images, with image details. In the course of the day, with the position of the sun, the detail that the narrator can see also changes continuously: blinds always provide only fragments of the event, never a comprehensive view..."
