Takt Academy is happy to present:
TAKT TALK by Christiane Bergelt, artist talks at TAPIR Gallery
These are paintings ass accumulation and remnant of all someone’s activities.
Motionless at first, but swift like sunbathing lizards, figures emerge.
Working with paper as ground, colour, bodies and pictorial space ignite my practice as a painter.
Events, words and ideas interfere before submitting and we find out when and why it is a painting.
Christiane Bergelt is a painter living in a house in the woods of Brandenburg.
Her work evolves around experience, memory, language and the utter joy of exploring colour and shape. The container and foundation for the work is the human figure.
She studied at the Chelsea College of Arts in London and the Academy of fine Arts in Nuremberg. In 2018 and 2015 she completed an Artist’ in Residence in Iceland.
