Transitraum III, 2013
Exhibition: 15th June until 6th July 2013
Transitraum III (Transitspace III) is a large-scale installation. The goal of this work is to blur and expand the existing spatial boundaries using surface-spanning painting and sculptural interventions. This can lead to irritation for the viewer by trying to fixate on his viewpoint and the horizon; the space-installation has different horizons and horizon heights.
The visitor and viewer crosses and may experience the space from different angels. Due minimalistic constractions new spaces and circumstances where build and borders or boundaries are openend or brake down.
Anna-Maria Kursawe artistic work ranges from small-format paintings and drawings to large paintings on canvas (using classic egg tempera technique) and spatial installations. Since she studied architecture as well as painting at the Universität der Künste in Berlin, it is natural for her to not only she wants to deal with architectural motifs in her paintings, but to also conversely apply her painting to the space and into the space, while taking the respective architectural circumstances into consideration.
