  Jennifer Oellerich, Memories of Italy, 2014 / Photo   (c) Marie Grafiteaux / INSITU        Jennifer Oellerich  transferred water stains from its wall of origin to the gallery’s white cube in 2012. With this site-specific work she referred to the appearance of water stains within different spatial contexts and to their meaning as an indicator of instability and porosity of walls. Working with concepts of water and rain, Jennifer Oellerich addresses the different meanings of horizontal lines in her recent works. She questions classical definitions of artistic techniques and its relations to each other, confronting them with the viewer’s perception. Her mixed media installation “Memories of Italy” (2014) deals with human perception of cutting lines as a distinction between earth and sky and as a variable border created by the water due to its physical behaviour determined by its surroundings.

  Prajakta Potnis, A photographic documentation of the sky from Mumbai and from Kolkata on 9.9.2012 from 5:27 am to 6:48 pm, 2012, 15 Photographs of the Mumbai sky courtesy Prajakta Potnis, 15 Photographs of the Kolkata sky courtesy Dhrupadi Wahshat Gosh  / Photo   (c) Marie Grafiteaux / INSITU       In her site-specific works Indian artist  Prajakta Potnis  transforms walls by modifying their solid character with cracks, holes or organic structures. She refers to history of a space and questions everyday life of individuals and its subjection to authority-made decisions. Currently living in Berlin, Prajakta Potnis experiences the history of the city. The former physical division she confronts with her own countries’ history. India’s east-west distance of almost 3000 km implicates a two-hour difference between sunrise and sunset between the regions, which leads to constant discussions about splitting the country again into different time zones. In her work “A photographic documentation of the sky from Mumbai and from Kolkata on 9.9.2012 from 5:27 am to 6:48 pm” (2012) Prajakta Potnis photographed – with the help of a friend from the opposed part of her country – the sky of the west and east Indian coast at the same time.
