ANNE PFEIFER / Pulse
The exhibition ANNE PFEIFER / Pulse took place from 28th of October until 17th of December 2016. The opening day was on 27th of October 2016.
Pulse can be traced to the latin word „pellere“ which means „beating or palpitating“ and encompasses the whole subject area of Anne Pfeifer's works across varied media, namely the vividness and the testimony of life itself. The repetitive acoustic of cardiac rhythm is molded by the young, German artist, into her own pictorial language. Gradually, this aesthetic tension will be transferred to anthropomorphic objects, which as a consequence morph from inanimate, geometric figures to organic frames. Just as the pulsating rhythm of the minimalist sculptures spreads to the viewers, we can also observe these traits in Anne Pfeifer's video works. In removing the meaning of character, appearance, state or origin, humans find their inherent similarities in the homogeneity of life itself. This interconnectivity can be best expressed by means of the pulse, which is inherent to every individual and consists of 50 to 100 beats per minute.
