Rosenfeld Porcini is proud to present A Fragile Existence, the inaugural UK solo exhibition by German artist Silvia Hatzl.

The exhibition will showcase her sculptural clothing, distorted torsos and heads which explore the illusion of clothing as a concealment of human nakedness. The premature ageing of the materials and fabrics are subject to an unnatural decay which heightens their imperfect beauty. Displayed across 3,000 square feet of gallery space, this exhibition follows on from her successful museum show at Museum am Dom Wurzburg, Germany, this summer.

Silvia Hatzl creates sculptures which are often highly theatrical and resemble recognisable forms, created from varying natural materials including linen, silk, cotton, paper and even animal intestines. As a result the works often reveal, in part or in whole, a heightened sense of transparency. The forms range from childlike in their scale to far larger than life, so that an installation of her work echoes a silent, ethereal group of living people.

All of the sculptures, due to the materials used, retain their natural creases and lines. Many of Hatzl’s works also reveal a great painterliness with the clothes often speckled with rust or pigment. Sometimes she applies sand, ashes or mortar to emphasise the richness and beauty of her carnal forms. Delicate to touch, they are silent performers.

Ian Rosenfeld, Director of the gallery, describes the unique poetic resonance behind her work: “We stare at these absent figures and we reflect on our own ultimate fragility in the world, not merely the physical but far more profoundly, the emotional.”

Hatzl’s natural materials, although apparently solid, possess an extreme delicacy behind their creation which retain the same sense of vulnerability present throughout all the exhibition works.

Silvia Hatzl will be performing a dance alongside her sculptures on the final day of the exhibition, Thursday 7 March.
