The work of Ulrike Flaig reflects a parallel rooting of the artist in the media of drawing, installation, Performance and experimental music. Flaig works conceptually, but then often implements the designs quickly and intuitively, so that the viewer can grasp the movement, sound and atmosphere of the space imaginatively. Her objects and installations are characterized by the play with semi-transparency, mirroring and reflection. Ulrike Flaig transforms the abstract configuration of black surfaces, angular forms and horizontal lines, found in a painting by Adolf Fleischmann, into a three-dimensional painting in her spatial installation Picture in Motion, 2017. “With this installation I have made a picture not only ‘visible’ but also ‘audible.’ By analyzing the painting, I have worked out a structure and used it as a basis for a notation. This in turn is the prerequisite for an acoustic reproduction of the picture. The instrument, that represents the characteristics of Fleischmann’s brush strokes, is the Ondes Martenot. The individual timbre oscillates in subtle nuances, just as the light breaks differently in the fine lines of the oil paint.”  (U.F.)
