Still Life

Laura Nitsche has been collecting handwritten objects of all kinds for years. In public spaces, parking lots, streets, shopping cards etc. The goods of selected shopping lists are depicted by her old-masterly in oil and hung as a still life equal to the framed shopping list. The extended series contains the leftover garbage. It is an assemblage of three framed paintings: Shopping list - Still life - Garbage life A book on this and relevant topics is in the works, a contribution on Ö1 was brought in this regard in the series "Leporello"." The still lifes were shown at the "Eat Art" exhibition at the Daniel Spoerri Ausstellungshaus and will be shown as part of the exhibition "Food Prints" at the Technisches Museum Vienna and in three other museums in Germany, Sweden and Spain.

CoroNah - DisTanz

This series was realized shortly after the first Lockdown. It is based on a performance of two artists who moved - according to coordinated rules - in one space. There were different challenges: You were pulled to the opposite corners of the room by means of elastic tape - away from each other, you had long rods to keep the distance, lengths of cloth, etc. Man is a social being and accordingly the attraction between people is great. Thus a natural "dance" developed, corresponding to the circumstances, which Laura Nitsche later painted, cut out, stuffed and sewed, creating soft and haptically experienceable sculptures- in largely touch-free times. An allusion to the "new" times of zoom conferences and the attempt to preserve a bit of privacy by means of picture backgrounds are the photo wallpapers onto which the sculptures were sewn with metal wire.
