🔴 GTWFeature: For the upcoming edition of Art Cologne next week, we are looking forward to presenting works by Kapwani Kiwanga, Angelika J. Trojnarski, and Anna Witt who we will feature in the next posts.
In her new body of work Angelika J. Trojnarski reflects on her ongoing examinations and past research residencies on wildfires in Greece and Mallorca.
The work is a reaction to the multitude of global and local wildfires, particularly occurring in the last three years, which have reached unprecedented levels with lasting consequences for the earth.
The artist employs the power and materiality of fire by igniting the edges of the paper and enriching it with soot. Thereby the clouds become the cause and effect of the hidden inner fire simultaneously.Through the use of intense bright and warm colors, Trojnarski visualizes the invisible high temperature rising from the glowing soil and vegetation.
