For his project Feldforschung Mundinger paints barns and buildings in the countryside. Showing his work in environments far from established exhibition venues or big cities, bringing unexpected perspectives to the visitors. In the motifs, he takes up stories of nearby residents or owners and includes what he learns about the building, about its use and function during the times. To find walls Mundinger drove endlessly through the countryside, checked satelite photos and asked around. While it was still somewhat easy to find the venues it was harder to find the owners – asking neighbours, mayors or land registry offices. The hardest part though is to convince the owners to be open for this experiment, having their property painted. Wall#1 is located close to Waltersbrück, a small village in Hessen, Germany. It belongs to farmer and butcher family Kaiser using the sourrunding fields to grow food for their animals. The white shapes refer to a microscopic image of wheat, the drawing on the left is inspired by agricultural engines. Two walls in North Rhine Westfalia were organized by Eva Rahe who also took some photos. They had been built as cow shelter and milking parlour. Here the photographer Rahe discovered two lovely visitors on the roof. The fourth wall is located in Biesenthal, Brandenburg, north of Berlin. It´s part of an ensemble that had been built as recreation home for officers of the emperor, later used by Nazis and then by the Stasi of GDR, before it stayed abandoned for 30 years. Now Culterim Gallery is organizing art residencies and festivals here. Feldforschung is made possible through a grant by Stiftung Kunstfonds/Neustart Kultur. Material support by Yes And… Productions.
