The Six Memos for the Next Millennium that Italian author Italo Calvino formulated in 1985 is a plea for the intellectual and graphic power of art and its ability to describe the world in ever new material qualities, in states of aggregation, as it were. Calvino noted, "two opposing literary tendencies have competed over the centuries: one that seeks to make language a weightless element that hovers over things like a cloud, or, better, a fine dust, or, better still, a magnetic field; another that seeks to imbue language with the weight and thickness and concreteness of objects and bodies and sensations".[1]
What Calvino describes for literature can be transferred directly to visual art. The exhibition "All that is solid…" contrasts the works of eight different artists on a spectrum from earthiness to lucid lightness. The starting point is the gestural traces- and symbol-imbued work of Georges Noël, a central proponent of French Art Informel, who stated: "It's about transforming everything material into the immaterial. And even a few strokes can create a space.” This is how the draughtsman and sculptor Robert Schad describes his solid steel sculptures as “plastic notations". The humorous objects that Birte Bosse brings into a precarious balance between lightness and heaviness can be read as drawings in space. A tension between organic and geometric forms characterises the 'drawing' of Birgit Hölmer, for which she uses embossing or adhesive strips. In DAG's work, the relentless pursuit of geometric grids is repeatedly disturbed by disruptions, which look like biological signs of life in a technical universe. Ignacio Uriarte uses a technical machinę – a typewriter – to tease out her unforeseen visual possibilities. Nadine Fecht also progresses line-by-line when she writes down repeated words or sentences, creating a drawing that, from a distance, generates Op-Art-like flickering effects. Also flickering before our eyes are the coloured threads that Jeongmoon Choi stretches not only into pictorial objects but also through the entire room, where they glow mysteriously and are seemingly dematerialised in the black light.
