Info

Ina Weber’s special edition for ECHTWALD is a wooden drying rack shaped like a folding screen. The lightweight framework resembles a minimalist sculpture, but serves a practical purpose. Weber’s take on an object found in every home, but usually lacking in aesthetic appeal, adapts to the surrounding space and – draped in coloured cloths – becomes a room divider, an object that nobody would want to store out of sight when not in use.
Ina Weber’s Spanish Drying Rack (2009) is available from the ECHTWALD Shop:
Ina Weber: Spanischer Wäscheständer, 2009

About the artist

Born in 1964 in Dietz an der Lahn, lives and works in Berlin

Ina Weber’s art focuses on observing urban relationships and developments, which she represents and annotates in sculptures and works on paper. For example, she might build a replica of a bus shelter only as high as a person, or make paper lanterns out of logos found on neon signs in the city. Familiar components from our surroundings are miniaturized, distorted, or isolated from their context until we can no longer take them for granted.
