For her first solo show in the US Adriane Wachholz is presenting seven video-based installations that combine works-on-paper, photography and computer mapping techniques. Each begins with an original, large-scale drawing, which is then fed into a computer and married to original, site specific film-footage. That allows the artist to quite literally bring scenic imagery alive while engaging with critical notions of representation and the sheer, seductive quality of the serene.
Based in Dortmund, Germany, Wachholz works in a wide variety of media, including works on paper, sculpture, and installation. She has received a number of important prizes and grants including a Nam June Paik emerging artist award and the DEW21 Art Prize for Contemporary Art. She has shown widely in Europe and Asia, including Kunsthalle Bielefeld; Videospace, Budapest; Museum Kunstpalast Düsseldorf, Rizzordi Art Foundation St. Petersburg and Art Futures at Art Hong Kong.
