Introduction: Helene Bosecker
Birgitta Weimer formulates her artistic worldview from the point of view of a dweller between the boarders of nature and technology. Out of the connection between material innovation and formal minimalism originate magical bodies or beings, which relate on one hand to perfection, to functionality, on the other to the beauty of nature and its system. Weimer sees the foundation of her creations in the polarity of different subjects: the melting of art and science is inherently ambivalent, which can be equal source for complexness and tenseness. Her works are not to be understood as illustrations of scientific theses, but rather they form visual analogies. The subtle use of the different aggregation stages of the used materials, the employment of light immediately draws the spectator emotionally, rationally and physically in. The balance of the process-like bipolarity gives Weimers works rigor and at the same time a meditative calm that lets the spectator think simultaneously about big, universal questions and small ones.
