NURTUREart is pleased to present On The Golden Wire for
Thirty Four\, a collaboration between Marysia Gacek\, Natalie
Häusler\, and Katharina Marszewski. Starting with
the general idea of an exchange of content between artists\, the initial f
ocus is put on the materiality of such content\, rather than its possible m
The point of departure is the limit: weight and volume of the most standard international package between the USA\, UK and German y. Each collaborator supplies one third of the materials and contributes to one Care Package*\, which will travel from New York to Berlin to Glasgow t o Berlin\, before returning to its city of origin.
This exchan ge of matter focuses on the process\, rather than what it manifests itself as in the end. The package is meant to supply three artists with the same m aterials to work with\, without a pre-envisioned outcome. The collaboration examines individual methodologies leading to creating work using a model o f giving and taking away.
When the package returns to New York \, it will be put on display alongside artworks inspired by its content in a gallery exhibition at NURTUREart.
*Although “CARE packag e” is a registered trademarked term\, originating in the wake of a World Wa r II campaign to send food and supplies to Europe\, the expression is still used in everyday vernacular to share the idea of providing comfort by send ing food\, supplies and small mementos. In 1945 Americans were given the op portunity to purchase a care package for 10 dollars to send to their friend s or relatives. In 1962 President John F. Kennedy said that every CARE pack age is a personal contribution to the world peace and it expresses concern and friendship in a language all peoples understand.
