Verena Schöttmer’s (*1978 in Meppen, Germany, lives and works in Hamburg, Germany) works include curtains, folding screens or carpets – partitioning elements that hide or receptacles that conceal and, as projection screens for one’s imagination, can promise everything but needn’t deliver anything. The artist addresses the unattainable invisible, which appears all the more desirable precisely for this reason. The two motifs of Schöttmer’s edition allude to this play with expectations. The collages are created according to a specific procedure: watercolor and digital print are layered on watercolor paper, giving the works a special quality and reflecting of Schöttmer’s textile working methods.
