About the Artwork

Risographs, paste, acrylic dispersion. DIN formats, especially the A4 format, determine a lot in our lives. We print on it, hold it in our hands, buy shelves in which A4 folders fit neatly. A4 sheets are the fields over which we move in the game of life. They convey bad news and good news to us - from a report card to an employment contract to a death certificate. Almost everyone has access to an A4 printer and A4 pages in their hands almost every day. Whether high literature, a stroke of fate or a shopping list, in the end a feeling remains like an imprint of the contents, even if the sheet no longer exists.

About the Artist

Konstitutiv der Möglichkeiten has been working together as an artist duo since 2017. Their collaborative practice under the joint label adapts forms of branding and strategies of self-marketing. They move between signature and brand, artistic identity, recognition and market-shaped visibility. Their works are often created with recourse to found objects and assemble them together with figurative gestures into scenic images. The figures appear as placeholders and stands, enriched with the melancholy of the void. They combine elements of Post Minimal and the everyday and object language of Pop, with narrative elements such as those found in the Belgian artist duo De Gruyter & Thys. The Konstitutiv der Möglichkeiten was founded in spring 2017 by the artists Nina Nick and Valerie Buchow. Nina Nick (*1988) studied with Prof. Rosemarie Trockel as well as Prof. Franka Hörnsche- meyer at the Düsseldorf Art Academy, where she graduated in 2019. Valerie Buchow (*1987) studied sculpture at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf with Prof. Didier Vermeiren, Prof. Jürgen Drescher as well as Prof. Martin Gostner, where she also graduated in 2019. Her works have been exhibited at Kunsthalle Düsseldorf, Malkasten and K21 Düsseldorf as well as at Gold und Beton in Cologne, among others. Jan Wagner / Filmwerkstatt Düsseldorf
