Vreni Spieser brings things together that at first glance do not fit together. Using working material that has accumulated over the years (drawings, photographs, samples of material, remnants of older works, etc.), she created the series "Perpetuum mobile (entonces)". Individual elements from earlier works for the VFO reappear. A perpetuum mobile - a system that is always in motion and keeps itself running - is graphically implemented here. The sheets can also stand alone, but, as the title suggests, can be continued "endlessly". Sheet I flows over into Sheet II and Sheet II into Sheet III: patterns, drawings, collages, colours are continued or taken up again. The artist gives an insight into the working process, for example by having the adhesive strips with which she fixes the various cut-out patterns also printed. The sketchy, coincidental remains. The result is a mixture of high and low, a perfect processing of the ingeniously arranged material - which fits together perfectly.

For the group exhibition "Positionen zeitgenössischer Druckgrafik" at the Gewerbemuseum Winterthur, Vreni Spieser has realized a new spatial intervention "schön ausmalen 2" (illustrations previous page). With a series of ten offset lithos with ornamental patterns and animal motifs, she wallpapered the entire walls of the museum corridor as a prelude to the exhibition. The artist provides visitors with coloured pencils with which they can colour in the wallpaper according to their own taste and preferences. With "Schön ausmalen 2", Spieser is continuing an essential theme of her artistic intentions of recent years, as she increasingly works in a space-related manner in order to capture, highlight, charge or even turn the atmosphere of a place. The 10 offset lithographs shown below were the basis for the installation "schön ausmalen 2" in the Gewerbemuseum. Thirty of these sets of 10 are available.

"For the last few years, I've been working mostly on a room-by-room basis. I want to capture the mood of the place, emphasize it, charge it or turn it upside down. This mostly with the help of ornamental or even decorative elements. I try to sound out boundaries. Where does good taste stop, where does something become banal, how much do I have to add to a room, how much life of its own do I give it? In addition, performative elements (actions with guests) in these rooms are becoming more and more frequent. The works for the Verein für Originalgrafik were created in Berlin. For quite some time I wanted to make smaller works that could be created anywhere, in addition to my large, elaborate installations that are tied to a specific location. In Berlin this attempt was successful. The drawings are a kind of atmospheric condensation. They arise from pictures and photos that I either collect or make myself. They contain similar elements to my space works: Ornaments, various objects, people, interiors, exteriors, and new: animals."
