The works of Ricarda Rommerscheidt show a strong reference to material and place. In her artworks and objects, she uses found materials such as feathers from an animal carcass, corn residue swept aside, an abandoned hornet’s nest. Rommerscheidt addresses the DIGNITY of those left behind finds. Sometimes these – like the hornet’s nest – are so fragile that a stabilizing crocheted wire mesh had to be added for the object-like presentation. Rommerschmeidt likes to use brown cardboard as a support, which can be easily cut to size and allows a departure from the traditional rectangular picture format. The works are often created directly at the place where they were found.
