Drawing serves as an essential part of Tore Reisch's art, especially in the development of his sculptural forms. This exhibition thematizes the mutual relationship between the two practices. The selected drawings refer to a three-dimensional counterpart, or is a processual continuation after a sculptural production. This is how a dialogue between the drawn line which is transformed into a spatial form and back again, into a new and expanded body.
In this exhibition, I thematize the everyday and the holidays. I try to equalize drawing and sculpture, I have always used drawing as a tool to create sculptures. I followed a path that has led me to various questions about science and its relationship to nature, facts and poetry. What happens when science dissolves myths and turns them into facts? Now I'm in a "chicken or the egg" situation. Do the ideas come out of the drawings or do the drawings come out of the ideas? From the drawings, a creative urge emerges, where the desire to work with wood and the craft follows. A series of drawings affect the visual language, from there I choose one that I start making. I'll use the drawing as a construction plan, but I know that the process takes time, and I leave room for changes along the way. In this exhibition I'll include everything. The drawings from the previous exhibition, a sculpture, and the drawings I have made since I started with the sculpture.
