Aesthetic issues relating to everyday and image culture form the basis of my works, whereby central categories of the artwork such as the motif, the shaping process, value, appearance and interpretation are renegotiated. In a process of artistic upgrading, predominantly cheaply produced raw materials such as paper strips, fabric bags or furnishing fabrics are used to create an independent work of art.

About the artist

In her works, Regina Zachhalmel deals with the perception of everyday and image culture, whereby central categories of the artwork such as the motif, the shaping process, value, appearance and interpretation are renegotiated. The result is configurations that knowingly question traditions in production and reception. Originality and uncontrollability in the sense of the incidental are knowingly provoked components of the cycle of work.

But the motif itself isn’t of primary interest, it’s much more about what happens in the artistic examination. Using different media formats that are usually arranged into multi-part series or blocks, set pieces of banal everyday life, as well as art and cultural history, are intertwined in a wide-ranging and associative network. In a process of artistic upgrading, predominantly cheaply produced raw materials (such as canopies, fabric bags and other mass-produced textiles) are used to create an independent character for the piece. The object is aesthetically upgraded and reinterpreted through the intervention of the artist. In doing so, children’s hats, for example, are carefully taken apart, disassembled into their individual pieces, painted, reshaped and put back together in a novel way. The product regains its interest. In the artwork , this is achieved using cheap industrially made strips that are given a second chance.

In her work, the artist scrutinises valid concepts of value and work by equally questioning the terms of production and reception in everyday life and in art.
