"For her first show in collaboration with Galerie Elisabeth & Klaus Thoman, Julia Haugeneder is showing a new series of folded sculptures and wall works that she developed especially for the gallery space in Innsbruck. The objects Faltung 203-235 are shown for the first time, partly on transparent pieces of Plexiglas furniture, partly on the anti-slip floor laid out in the gallery as part of the exhibition. In addition, two large wall works hang in the entrance area, a linocut made of standard floor material, 2 x 3 metres, and the work untitled (Lamellen). The latter is made of the same material as the artist’s Faltungen, in which Haugeneder mixes bookbinding glue with pigment and then shapes or folds the material, that has dried in the flat. An audio book created for the exhibition, written by Ulrich Meurer, a film and media scientist, provides the soundscape in Idylle, blau, which invites visitors to immerse themselves in it. The artist took inspiration for the title and the atmosphere of the show from the US feature film The Swimmer (1968).
