MANUELA EICHNER IS A MULTIFACETED VISUAL ARTIST WITH WORK RANGING FROM VIDEOS AND PERFORMANCES TO COLLABORATIVE WORKSHOPS, ILLUSTRATIONS, GRAPHIC DESIGN and installation.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Manuela Eichner has participated in a variety of programs worldwide such as Rumos Itaú Cultural in Brazil, the group show UTROPIC in Poland and the Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanstik residence in Berlin, Germany.
Manuela has exhibited her ‘Monstera Deliciosa’ project at several galleries in Brazil, including Galeria Ecarta in 2015 and in 2016 at Instituto Tomie Ohtake, Arte Pará and SIM Galeria. Her experiments in this project occupy the space with three-dimensional collages where images of bodies and entangled objects gain scale.
As an illustrator, Manuela produces collages for several newspapers and magazines such as Folha de São Paulo and Trip Magazine.
Manuela & AnnexB
Manuela stayed in our studio for two weeks to prepare her workshop and to create new works. We organized an open studio to show her art, engage her with the public and develop new opportunities on November 19-20, 2016.
AnnexB was proud to announce Manuela Eichner's workshop DRAW IT in partnership with First Street Green Art Park, an open art space serving the Lower East Side community.
Manuela’s work explores the language of drawing from the juxtaposition of collage and public actions. Using yarn, cut-outs and plants, children and adults immersed themselves in a full experience of collaboration and creativity and built a three-dimensional work of art.
“Enter into a blank page. Try not to make a sound. Breathe in. Take the end of the yarn thread. Let your body draw something spontaneous. Move yourself. Discover the space slowly. Look at the people around you. Draw a straight line. Let the line itself determine where it wants to go. You're the line, enjoy it. Celebrate. Lose yourself. Use every inch of the yarn. Stop. Watch the plants. (...)”
Manuela has presented this workshop in Brazil at different venues, including Sesc Belenzinho, Itaú Cultural, Sesc Campinas, Casa Coaty and Sesc Bom Retiro.
