`to act as if you are completely free, is the only way to freedom`,
Mixed media, 70 x 50 cm 2020

A series of collages presented seemingly conventionally on framed paper provide an insight into the complex process behind the artist's practice. For Silke Eva Kästner, collage is a way to reinterpret her own history by newly contextualising the materials she finds and those that are given to her. In this way her work is always fluid and ongoing. The paper collages have their origin in previous installations which included large colour planes arranged by the artist as three dimensional collages in space.
