Is this/this is….Claudio Mollzahn
Elysiumgallery, High street studios, 27 – 29 High Street, Swansea
Weds 19th October, 7pm
Claudia Mollzahn has been in residence at the is this/this is…. Project space the past month.
‘I am a textile artist with a keen interest in movement and performance. Pieces I create invite people to touch and explore. Sometimes my work is wearable, but rarely useful. the purpose is fun and interaction. I love to play.
Having the chance to create a whole space just the way I want it was a very exciting prospect. I wanted to do something very different, almost opposite to my usual work. Inspired by a residency in Iceland in February 2016 I decided to create a white space and then explore the possibilities of starting something from nothing.
At this event I will share with you what I have come up with’.
Situated in the elysiumgallery High Street studios, the is this/this is test-bed space is primarily used by residency artists and the elysiumgallery studios community. The aim is to enable artists to work and experiment towards creating new work in an environment outside of their usual studio practice in preparation for critical discussions within the group. The space enables artists to develop, to build, to take risks, to test and to invite peers to see the work in progress.
The project space discussions are open to members of elysiumgallery studios and their guests.
