Press release

Isa Melsheimer – Der unerfreuliche Zustand der Textur 

Curated by Kathrin Becker.

In her works, Isa Melsheimer (*1968 in Neuss, lives in Berlin) deals with architectural and urban spaces, including their formal language, functional history, and social significance. Her materials are heterogeneous: heavy, hard, and resistant materials such as glass, concrete, and ceramic are combined with embroidered curtains, textile masks, and even ensembles of living plants. The finely crafted and “handmade” always plays a role in her objects and installations. Since the 1990s the artist has also created gouaches that function as an architectural archive, in which she uses found photographs to illustrate the structures and functioning of built spaces.
