Project #8 in Wiesbadener Kurier
Ulrich von Mengden wrote about Project #8 by Birgitta Weimer in the Wiesbadener Kurier of 3 December 2022. With the headline "A few square metres of galaxy", he presents the installation and the light art objects, which the artist calls Messier objects after the French astronomer Charles Messer (1730 - 1817).

Marion Eichmann: Sight.Seeing Bundestag
Marion Eichmann worked for a year on behalf of the art advisory board in the houses of parliament and observed the everyday life of a highly complex machine that keeps the heart of democracy beating almost invisibly. Her interest was focused both on rooms and iconic facades known from the media, as well as on rarely visible work rooms, machines, information signs and devices that are essential for the smooth running of the daily operations of this distinguished building. The result is more than one hundred paper cuts, collages and drawings that show the parliament in a surprising, complex abundance and color and from unusual perspectives.
From June 2 till September 11, 2022, the exhibition can be visited on weekends as part of guided tours by the visitor service and during special tours in weeks when there are no parliamentary sessions. Dates and more information can be found on www.kunst-im-bundestag.de
A catalog for the exhibition will be published by Hatje Cantz Verlag: Marion Eichmann. Sight.Seeing Bundestag, ISBN 978-3-7757-5227-5
Pictured here: Marion Eichmann in der studio in front of "HM 10 P (Hubwagen und Steiger)", 2021, paper collage eight parts, 205×290×4cm, photo: Roman März.

The title of the show, which could be translated as "From laundry maschine to Porsche - paper works", emphasizes the way the artist addresses the everyday.
