POST Ebisu, Tokyo

The works of Austrian artist Sarah Bildstein take up the medium of painting as an expansion of what determines the painterly space. The exhibition Excerpts at POST shows works of the two series 100 Specters (2018-20) and Unknown - April April (2020-21). The first presents a complex play with scientific methods and a reflection on the diversity and aesthetic meaning of water; the spectral works on paper use the visible creative power of water and its fluid materiality as a starting point. Presented here is a selection out of 100 original paintings created using the process of chromatography from water samples collected worldwide and analyzed in the laboratory. All 100 unique works on paper can be seen in her book. The second series focuses on experiment on the interaction between materials such as water, ink, rice, sand, soap, and oil paint. Traces remain discernible within the layers of the painting, which retains an inexplicability that always permeates the mysterious transformation of materials into art, and process of creation akin to a traveler crossing a landscape for the first time, that nonetheless feels uncannily familiar.
