Exhibition Ingrid Schreyer

Enjoy the soft opening of the new exhibition "ALBUM WALD" by Ingrid Schreyer at Galerie Marenzi from Saturday, March 5, 2022 from 10am-4pm. Ingrid Schreyer about the exhibition: "I am not interested in the separating, categorizing, but the integrative view, which follows the structural multiformity and interconnectedness of the templates. Consequently, wood fibers, the sapwood, the splice, the fibrous structure of bark, bark, branches and ramifications, roots, uprooting... and in particular the environment, the neighborhood, the soil, the technical attributions... their expression in my very structurally rich picture writing and its seams and fractures. I value that image making follows its own longer temporality and the growth potential stored within. This includes incorporating leaf segments from other processes of creation."

 You can see the exhibition from March 5-April 23, 2022, always on Saturdays from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. and by phone appointment. Please note applicable Covid-19 regulations!For more information, visit
