Wellblech Bilder

Kaoli Mashio

Info: Neither crystalline brilliance nor splendor lie hidden in rusty corrugated iron; instead, it embodies pragmatism, protection, color, and time, along with its own surface texture – Mashio seems to show a renewed interest in these attributes in each of her works. During a longer stay in Japan, the artist’s attention was repeatedly drawn to one of these facades. Mashio’s Wellblechbilder are based on her first encounter with the facade, on its initial impact, or rather impression, on an aspect that would change with each new visit. Despite their makeshift appearance, the metal sheets possess a fundamental strength: they protect the interior of a building from cold, heat, water, and snow.
