The images on show are produced in a complex and slow process of adding layer to layer, through different digital tools and algorithms. Digital drawings appear in virtual landscapes, working as light-sources of their own or become textured and haptic, by the means of not fully predictable algorithmic processing. It is a process of constant input-output, reworking and replacing.

We are going to meet different characters, Melankoholiker or Struwwelpetra, P. or Pevlov, an immense floating eye, supposedly belonging to one of the characters, some of which have appeared in previous works. Character- and narrative development is a loose but generative drive to the images and is a way of investigating unknown land or new visual worlds, through the perspective of a specific person. But often, the specific narratives and circumscribed characters fall away; they have become a DNA, that hovers in the background and guides what has now established itself as a world of its own.

Sies + Höke is pleased to announce their first solo show with Hedda Schattanik and Roman Szczesny, a presentation of works initially conceived to be shown at the entire gallery space in Düsseldorf.

In light of current events and in an effort to help contain the spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19), Hedda Schattanik and Roman Szczesny have changed their original exhibition concept into a window presentation.

loom will be on view from the outside of the gallery’s main window from January 22nd until March 6th, 2021.
