In the exhibition Miriam Bajtala subjects her own past to an experimental act of visualization and actualization. The starting point are reconstructions of the floor plans of the apartments in which the artist lived - a spatial curriculum vitae. On the basis of these graphic templates, she created 18 text miniatures for each apartment, reduced to the essentials. On the one hand, the text raises different sociological questions about social origin, working class, migration, on the other hand, dissociative cracks arise with regard to shame, anger and other feelings.The written ends where her life as an artist begins.
Based on this artistic practice, Bajtala designs different concepts for creating images:
Here you see a large-format drawing fragmented over 12 frames, abstracted in bright colors and surfaces. The drawings is reproducing parts of the room floor plans as overlapping and parallel layers on a scale of 1: 1.
