Berlin-based artist Heike-Karin Föll (born 1967, DE) works on the materiality and mechanisms of drawing, painting, and writing. The exhibition speed at KW Institute for Contemporary Art is her first institutional solo show and presents an overview of various groups of work. Her work interacts with everyday media reality and styles, analogue and digital texts and displays. Föll works “post-post” – emerging from no longer solid, former postmodernist strategies such as appropriation, quotation, and repetition. Drawing, and therefore also its smallest unit, the line, are prominent in this context. From here, different artistic formats unfold: a page of a book, a sheet of paper, a canvas, all becoming seemingly translucent towards digital screens. The individual works are embedded in a structure of correlation that blurs their respective boundaries.

The exhibition at KW is Heike-Karin Föll’s first institutional solo exhibition in Germany, and presents an overview of various groups of work.
