Husmann/Tschaeni’s artworks come together collaboratively as a rare synergy of the makers and their subjects. Everyone and everything that is built, dreamed, felt, stumbled-upon and incessantly captured come into a space of effervescent beauty. It is an intervention, a happening of sorts over a period of time, of which the final show is but a collection of moments that came to grasp, and those that unfurl eternally. Miraculously is a show of works as paintings, installations and performances that were made in collaboration with the Keshar Academy of Learning in Goa. The artist couple moved their studio to school, setting it up with the children, exploring the surroundings with them, interacting, collecting materials, playing and finding stories. The artworks have emerged amongst the children and Husmann/Tschaeni capture these simmering imaginative fields in their paintings through a process of working backwards, painting in layers on the reverse of acrylic glass, using different materials, such as enamel, oil color, watercolor, crayon, glitter and spray. These are landscapes of the true dreamers organically unfolding to our gaze; the realms of knowing that are so easily open to children. Hence there couldn’t have been a better collaboration than with the Keshar Academy, which, following the Waldorf education, treasures hands-on making, creative play and imagination. The materials have been collected from the immediate surroundings, and the coconut leaf forms an important motif, rooting the conversation between Goa and the Swiss based artists. Miraculously is a fascinating world of iridescent tangles, florescent chimes, the lull of a tiny bell and the light step of a fawn.
