NADINE SCHEMMANN | Museum Wiesbaden

From December 15, 2023 through April 7, 2024, Museum Wiesbaden presents Berlin based artist Nadine Schemmann in the series of Interventions showing her works in the context of the museum collection.

Nadine Schemmann creates works with a depth of color beyond the boundaries of classical painting. Her artistic work is based on memories of synaesthetic experiences from past encounters. In the actual painting process, the artist enters into a dialog characterized by freedom and attention, in which the colors and materiality of the painting support express themselves together with her. She achieves the fascinating depth of her color spaces through the use of chlorine bleach. Linen is Nadine Schemmann’s preferred painting support. She allows threads or seams to protrude, creating islands of color. She also draws attention to the structure of the fabric by distorting it slightly. The artist sometimes frees her painting medium completely from the stretching frame so that they flow down the walls or condense into sculptures hanging freely in the room.

Nadine Schemmann (born 1977) lives and works in Berlin. In the series of interventions, the Museum Wiesbaden invites artists to show their works in the context of the museum collection.
