Relating to water, spaces, and other agents. On the journey behind Juliane Tübke’s project Weathering

Research output: Contributions to collected editions/worksOtherTransfer


In her previous works fac simile (2017/18), tentare (2018), and nota (2019), Juliane Tübke explored the technique of epigraphy—the study of written remains, for example antique engravings in marble—when working with imprints of stones . Moving from the materiality of stone to water, Juliane Tübke's new project, Weathering, seems to ask: how can water take the role of an active co-creator of textual and visual works instead of being a passive referent in a representation process? The multipart project, which combines installations, a poem, and a watercolor series, gives us the sense that the artist does not think of representation from its end product; on the contrary, when she uses the agency of water as inspiration and driving force, the project can be understood as a reflection on questions of representation from within.
