anja roth - from street art to eat art to meet art. big size, casual, colourful. making art about people, for people, with people. hanging a canvas on the wall is not enough. anja develops art for experienced togetherness, for emotive participation, for an instant of personal challenge.
as an interdisciplinary artist she combines the "social impact competences" of her freelance work with scenic, strong and improvised artwork in the sense of finite concept art. painting, collage, assemblage - she has committed herself to participatory artistic collaboration and is always looking for merge and togetherness as well as for sparring and demarcation.
eatyourcity.art is the current experiment in this sense for 2020 and probably beyond. an agile, creative and travelling collaboration with sabine mader, photographer from munich. making art, taking part, opening doors, building bridges and provoking smiles. Of course! In different places, diverse communities and random framesets they will take pictures in gardens, in pantries, in street kitchens and at set tables. in spontaneous fusion with the photographs the corresponding paintings merge into aesthetic and cheeky compositions. imbued overlays, colourful collages and layered levels. outside, in the twilight, on the street. using beamer, courage and wallpaper paste.
what comes out ist more than painting, more than photography - it is artwork in a window of opportunity, time and togetherness.
becoming street art on walls, tables (tafelbilder), poster pillars and on the asphalt. together with the "affected" neighborhoods, tables will be set, people will eat, talk and smile. artists and non-artist cherish the beauty of colours, the joy of taste and the fun of being together.
celebrating the gift of food in a mixture of social plastic, assemblage-art and expedition. finding values, esteem and appreciation for each of us. will the people on site get involved? will they understand? do they have to understand at all? sure, they can feel it.
