Laura Sachs
02.04.22–30.04.22
SETAREH X is pleased to present Laura Sachs' second solo exhibition above / below. Through clear compositions and precise settings, the Berlin-based artist creates unique pieces that assert themselves as multi-perspective pictorial structures in space.

In the works of the W series, still-wet acrylic paint is washed out of the canvas and partially reapplied, creating sediment-like structures and vertical stripes of colour on the fabric, which occasionally resemble a curtain and potentially suggest a certain movement. The metal settings, which in turn appear static, seem to fix the canvas and stabilize the composition of the entire structure of the painting, thus contrasting with the surface, which tends to appear in motion.

At first glance, Laura Sachs' works appear serial, but upon closer inspection they turn out to be painted, composed, and constructed unique pieces that, in contrast to Minimal Art, consciously provide clues to their underlying work processes while at the same time incorporating their machine-made components. Through the handwriting, the processuality, and through the distinctiveness of her reductive pictorial aesthetic, Laura Sachs formulates an independent artistic iconographic program that continuously articulates its inherent regularities and perpetuates them in new variations.

Laura Sachs (b. 1985 in Darmstadt, DE) studied philosophy and art in Frankfurt a. M. and attended the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf from 2013 to 2018, where she first studied under Hubert Kiecol and graduated as a "Meisterschülerin" of Gregor Schneider. She has been exhibited in numerous solo and group shows at salondergegenwart and Kunstpalast, Düsseldorf, among others.
