Installation / Drawing / Photography
14 October 2022 – 8 January 2023
Exhibitions in interior spaces are always an examination of the walls and their relationship to the space. The artworks determine the perception of the walls, placed by curators or by the artists themselves. They set distances and proportions – orchestrate connections between the exhibits, determine the way they are viewed. But there are also works that do not want to be hung, that are not framed, but that refer decidedly to the rooms, as drawings, installations or photographs.
(born 1984 in Tyrol) works with minimal means, primarily black rubber bands, with which she stages spatial situations that mark the character of the place and at the same time irritate the orientation within it.
The exhibition space is transformed into a black and white labyrinth. Exploring the found architecture becomes difficult, spatial vision is put to the test. In Bogner’s work, the walls are the scaffolding for constituting a dynamic spatial experience.
(born 1975 in Berlin) works with photographic trompe l’œils, with optical illusions. She creates photographs or generates new images from found archival photographs. Friebel defines space as an image that shifts in the change of perspective of our moving observation.
The photographs, which Friebel puts directly on the wall as wallpaper, suggest a real existence in interaction with the museum-like spatial constellation. The wallpaper trompe l’oeil as part of the wall alters the space and unsettles perception – where does the image end, where does the space begin?
(born in 1952 in Hamm-Rhynern/Westphalia) devotes his art primarily to drawing. For this exhibition he has created large-scale graphite drawings for two walls. The immediate drawing on the wall requires interactive response to the already visible states of the image.
Unlike painting, where the lightest areas are painted at the very end, drawing is always developed from light to dark. Thereby the picture is laid out from the outset over its entire format around then, gradually in the sense of the intention approximately to be condensed. After the exhibition, each drawing is destroyed, the original disappears forever.
