On May 27, Tiefgarage presents the first solo exhibition of Anastasia Ax in Germany. The artist lives in Stockholm and works primarily with paper, plaster and ink. Her interventions are associated with site-specific and performative processes.
Ax uses for The World As Of Yesterday waste paper from regional recycling companies. The paper is collected in companies and households and pressed into blocks and so prepared for further processing. The blocks form a cross-section of discarded information of a specific area and time. As starting material for the exhibition Ax selects these culminations from worthless, historical documents and reactivates the forgotten information in the exhibition context. Like archaeological findings the possibilities of the found object – the paper – are examined through. The process and its results are presented in the exhibition and are being continuously updated.
