Marie Jeschke and Anja Langer, ma drama bebe, toto ma (series 2017)

Marie Jeschke (*1982, DE) and Anja Langer (1984, DE) meet and rehearse their being-together. Glass is the common base, the favorite playground, a slide to write on. These are fragile tables with razor sharp irregularities. Their angles are protected with improvised padded frameworks and the surfaces enriched on both sides with raw materials, objects, engravings and fluids. Here, gestures meet and blend. Marie Jeschke and Anja Langer are always able to see each other through. Here, they negotiate the limits of their own practice and medium, painting and sculpture and put at risk the notion of individuality. From this new utterance arise hybrid bodies, moving- and shared-objects, that become contact zones for other companions to be invited and pool actions and resources in a most intimate way.
