Artist statement

I am a thread waving into the texture of the universe.

My thread is light - source ~ light - wave channelling energy ~ vibrating with other

energetic waves. Creating resonance.


Biography

Magdalena Maatkare, a German artist based in Berlin, passed her Bachelor at the

Sorbonne in Paris and her Master degree at the ENS LYON (École Normale

Supérieure). She has been raised up and lives now in several cultures: Germany –

France – and West Africa (Senegal, Guinea, Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso.)

Inspired of the multifaceted and cultural meaningful wax-print-textile-motives

of West-African cultures (Senegal, Ivory Coast a.m.) where the artist spent more than

two years of her life, she creates in every of her works with innumerable

textile particles new cultural textile units. Textiles are for the artist symbols of culture

- mostly visible in clothes. Waxprint-textiles are not only a cultural narrative through

the cultural transfer from Indonesia to Africa to Europe and back to Africa but also

through their meaningful patterns. Today they are understood from West African

people as a part of their identity. Very important for the artist is the connection of

cultures in our days: through her artwork she contributes to this in form of an active

European - African connection: she receives the textiles from tailors knowing from

her time in West-Africa and gives them a part of the art sale in return.

Maatkare’s works are collages combining in a very special way painting and textile

art, and each artwork reveals an energetic strong explosion of colour. Maatkare

works with vigorous colours because each colour has the power to transmit energy

through the vibration of the light wave - producing a healing effect on the onlooker.

Her works can be received as creatures lightening up transcendental experiences.

After exhibitions in the international art scene (Dakar, Paris, Berlin, Venice, Madrid,

Monaco etc.) she is becoming an established artist with her very own technique of

textile collages with waxprint fabric. Besides her oeuvres, she creates installations

and performances shown during her exhibitions and other events. Some video

recordings are available for viewing on her website (www.magdalenamaatkare.com).
