Malte Urbschat

2009

Malte Urbschat’s objects, drawings, collages, and installations are colorful and shiny, his materials are commonplace and with the mania of a hobbyist seemingly provisionally assembled, and his rather abstract conglomerations narratively charged. He likes materials such as tinsel because of its light-reflecting properties, its ability to break up any object in its original appearance, and a strongly aestheticising effect that forms a charming contrast to its cheapness.

In case of his annual edition, Urbschat makes “whips” from tinsel. What is originally linked to ideas of power-driven sex practices or violence is here presented in a cheerful and colourful material and without the possibility of pain-producing use. Urbschat’s works feed on everyday life, translating these fragments of our reality into an individual artistic language and thus developing their own perspective on what appears to us to be real.
