Mural Mirrorings

Alice DittmarĀ“s  site specific drawings using a ballpoint pen  on photographs transform the entire exhibition space - including  its fixtures and fittings such as windows and  mirrors - into the starting point for a successive approximation.

In "Mural Mirrorings" , A.D. adopts the  format of wall mirrors in the exhibition rooms, transferring onto them the mural paintings of Dr Narenda Jain (Indian visual artist, former diplomat and yogi) from the exterior space of HAUNT into its interior.
She uses photographs of the mural as an underlying motif for her drawings, transforming the latter into an iridescent mirror  surface by applying three layers of strokes from a ballpoint pen. 
The image motif is changed in this way into a state of emptiness that reflects everything else - the room and the viewer.

As the next step in the course of the exhibition  A.D. produces further  formats by replicating and repainting the surfaces that have already be painted over. 
Her artistic process enters a stage of duplication and acceleration, with the possibility - in theory - of  endless multiplication.

Furthermore, residens   of the house complex, as well as exhibition visitors are invited  to fill postcard-sized surfaces using ballpoint pen and so contribute their own formats to the exhibition.
