In the exhibition "fragments" held in the Galerie Prisma, Elisa Alberti presents new works having a variety of formats.
Elisa Alberti shifts between the media of painting and drawing, and combines elements of each. Her works are characterized by an abstract-formal artistic style based in the objectiveness of day-to-day reality.
Within her chosen field of expression, Elisa Alberti applies colors, shapes, and lines to paper, wood, or canvas. By superimposing and layering alternating graphical and organic shapes and fragments, the interplay of the foreground and the background represents a focus of her artistic process. Her pictorial compositions are limited to just a few colors which are then expanded through shades and progressions. This results in drawings and paintings which usually make use of the same format and which make it possible to recognize one and the same related, formal principle.
At the Galerie Prisma, visitors can view multiple series of small-format works from different cycles as well as large paintings on canvas. The artist presents works mounted opposite each other in steel stands, thus opening up an additional level of viewing. As a result, the works advance from the wall and into the room, thus providing the visitor with changing points of view.
The sound and video installation "flying fragments" developed especially for this exhibition represents a collaboration between Elisa Alberti and Alexander Ebner and presents in the second part of the exhibition painted and digitalized fragments from the artist's works in moving form.
