It’s Always Night, Or We Wouldn’t Need Light
This beautiful, softcover catalog documents a joint presentation of Astrid Nippoldt’s films accompanied by painted installations by Hansjoerg Dobliar at the Villa Merkel in Esslingen. It showcases two artists who follow in the footsteps of Romantic traditions, creating art which inspires dreaming. Dobliar, for his part, harnesses his large over-paintings of magazine photographs in colorfully gloomy constructions to form the effect of cosmic space with these seemingly crystalline structures. Nippoldt, whose films are evocative fragmented narratives, uses witty detail to define, gently, the absurdity of existence. Don’t miss Hans-Jurgen Hafner’s marvelous essay, written from the imagined future. Includes several photographs of the installations along with essays by Andreas Baur, Doris Krystof and Johannes Meinhardt.
