Mady Piesold


Painting, drawings and objects

November4th - December 17th, 2011


Mady Piesold, who was born in 1979 in Riesa, tries in her paintings to explore the various forms of city life, seen from extremely high viewpoints. She was inspired years ago looking down on to cities from airplanes or hills. The structure of a city, formed by humans, she perceives as the organism of a gigantic living being. The young artist finds expression for this phenomenon using experimental techniques. The relationship between the structure and function of the "bodies of cities" is of great interest to her, as is the question of how such a perception might influence architecture and urban planning.

Besides painting and graphic design Mady Piesold devotes her time to making short satirical films. She creates her own figures and stage sets, does the animation and the acting, writes the music and does the synchronizing herself. Her films are a sensual impressive experience for an audience. During the opening we will be showing her film "The Palace", which won an award at the International Festival of Satirical Film 2008, "34. Eulenspiegeleien".
