Ilse Altrogge, Ausstellung

Whatever I.A. takes up from her environment, it is always the starting point for a risky excursion into the world of pure imagination where light is the dominant energy - sometimes in the bright colouring, sometimes hidden in the contrast of darkened colours. - All the materials she uses keep their specific structures, and yet they are - at the same time- provoked to reach their final limits: when she restores found objects with great inspiration you discover the fascination of playful imagination and the charmingly spontaneous associations, by which she manages to present the special inherent relations of the single objects to each other in a very humorous way.
(Elisa Roubaud, "El País", Montevideo)
