January 29 – May 15, 2022
With Nanne Meyer (* 1953 Hamburg), the Horst Janssen Museum has invited a draftswoman who chose this medium many years ago. The medium of drawing does not restrict her, but inspires her - on the contrary - to ever new "world views". Her latest works revolve around nothing less than the universe. In the partly huge formats and very free compositions, the question is: Where am I located (in the world)? With titles such as "Universe," "Meteorites," "Edges of the World," "Free Fall," "Starry Tent," and "Quantum Foam," the artist shows diverse groups of works that evoke an aesthetic of wonder and uncertainty.
Nanne Meyer draws with pencil and colored pencil, wax and oil crayon, ballpoint pen, acrylic and ink, pastel, gouache, and emulsion paint, showing what drawing is capable of. The works are mostly from the current and last year and are shown on two floors of the house.
