Karoline Schreiber’s Eraser Collection

this is a collection of erasers. Not any old erasers, but the tools of other artists. At first glance, they look astonishingly, even disappointingly, like those objects that lie carelessly around on our own desk. But wouldn’t each of us immediately recognise our own eraser amongst all these colourless lumps and wornout remnants? In deepest respect for the work of others and in awe of the mystery of artistic creation, these small sculptures have been brought together, like tiny fetishes that are still soaked in the sweat of the creative hand, so that she always has them close by as inspiration, muse, good spirit, intercession, amulet– or whatever she wants to call them. No longer missing. Always there.

Phone Drawings

Phone Drawings is a selection of 16 drawings from a huge body of drawings that the artist calls "automatic" because they are created intuitively, without a goal and out of automatism. In this, of course, she also refers to ecriture automatique. Whenever she can, she takes out her sketchbook to draw in it. Because she also makes phone calls from time to time, there are also a lot of phone drawings, from which a small selection has now been compiled in this zine. Many of us are familiar with telephone drawings; most of them are ornamental scribbles, but in Schreiber's case they are mostly strange figures and figurations that are in surreal interactions and transformations.
