by Michel Kolenberg
Felicitas Rohden’s work is characterized by subtle interactions between materials and shapes, object qualities and their ephemeral character. Her installations are often inspired by real examples from mathematics or theoretical physics. For the first time, with ‚Stretched‘ she shows latex objects which remind of Henri Poincaré’s (1854 - 1912) topological classification, where two-dimensional surfaces are being transformed in three-dimensional volumes. Inflated with air, these objects stretch between the box and the glas. They broach the vitrine as a structured mathematical space.
Within the scope of the exhibition, the artist shows a selection of books from the LUCA library that have a relation to her work. Here a bookmark as an edition of 50, specially created for this event, establishes a connection between literature, diagram, material, and object.
