NO OPENING 01 - Sebastian Schager & Joseph Rudolf

Exhibition: 
JUNE 1 - JUNE 28, 2020
Location: 
Jan Arnold Gallery | MQ, Q21 Showrooms | Museumsplatz 1, 1070 Vienna

Der derzeitige Ausnahmezustand rund um das Coronavirus veranlasst uns das besondere Ausstellungsformat NO OPENING ins Leben zu rufen. Die Ausstellungsreihe wird ohne Eröffnungen auskommen, gänzlich reduziert auf das Wesentliche nämlich die Kunst und deren Betrachtung. Statt thematischen Vorgaben wird die Isolation zum gemeinsamen Nenner.

The current state of emergency around the corona virus is the impulse for us to launch the special exhibition format NO OPENING. The exhibition series will take place without openings, completely reduced to the essentials, namely art and its observation. Instead of thematic guidelines, isolation becomes the common denominator.

Alles wird gut!

Exhibition: 
APR - JULY, 2020
Location: 
MQ Wien Vorhof - Haupteingang

Eine Assemblage zum Thema Innen und Außen und was dazwischenliegt.

---

David Mases Werk ist vielschichtig und bewegt sich frei zwischen abstrakter Malerei, Grafik, Skulptur und ortsbezogenen Installationen. Seine Aktuellen Arbeiten lassen sich als abstrakte Räume beschreiben in denen er verschiedene Genres der Malerei und Collage zusammenführt, digitale und graphische Elemente mit gestischer Malerei verbindet oder alltägliche Materialien zu dreidimensionalen Assemblagen zusammensetzt.

Inside-Inside=outside

An assemblage dealing with inside and outside and what lies in between.

---

David Mase´s work is multi-layered and moves freely between abstract painting, graphics, sculpture and site-specific installations. His current works can be described as abstract rooms in which I bring together different genres of painting and collage, combine digital and graphic elements with gestural painting or bring together everyday materials to three-dimensional assemblages.

Dem Konkreten verpflichtet, der Abstraktion verfallen. „Schemen“ – Die aktuelle Werkreihe von Markus Grabenwöger rückt die Deutungshoheit des Betrachters in den Mittelpunkt des gegenwärtigen Werkes. Die stets vorhandene Horizontale verweist auf das allgegenwärtige landschaftliche Motiv. Licht, Natur, Schönheit sind die Impulse die den Gemälden dieser Serie Richtung und Betrag zuweisen.

Committed to the concrete, addicted to abstraction. "Schemes" - Markus Grabenwöger's current series of works places the viewer's sovereignty of interpretation at the centre of the present work. The ever-present horizontal refers to the omnipresent landscape motif. Light, nature, beauty are the impulses that assign direction and amount to the paintings in this series.

Living Studio – Creative Process 2019

Wir laden euch herzlich zur Erkundung des Living Studios vom 4.-18.12.2019, zur Vernissage am 20.12.2019, 19 Uhr und zur Ausstellung der fertiggestellten Werke vom 21.-23.12.2019 sowie vom 7.-19.1.2020 ein. Wir freuen uns bei der zweiten Auflage des Projekts 17 Künstler_innen ankündigen zu dürfen.

Ort: frei_raum Q21 exhibition space, MQ Wien

Das Atelier wechselt den Ort, in eine neue Umgebung. Im Rahmen der Neuauflage des Kunstprojekts Living Studio wird der frei_raum Q21 exhibition space im Wiener MuseumsQuartier zum zweiten Mal in öffentlich zugängliche Arbeitsplätze für Künstler_innen transformiert.

Die Projekte der Kunstschaffenden werden vor Ort erlebbar gemacht und damit Einblicke in kreative Schaffensprozesse ermöglicht. Nach zwei Wochen öffentlichen Arbeitens werden die entstandenen Werke in einer Ausstellung präsentiert.

Bei klassisch konzipierten Ausstellungen steht das Resultat in Form von fertigen Werken im Mittelpunkt wobei die Schaffensphase im Dunklen bleibt. Im Gegensatz dazu hat das Projekt Living Studio den Anspruch einen Einblick in die Tätigkeiten von Künstler_innen zu ermöglichen, den Prozess ins Licht zu rücken und das Verständnis für Kunst abseits vom Museumsbetrieb zu stärken. Dadurch wird der Dialog angeregt und einem breiten Publikum ein niederschwelliger Zugang gewährt.

Zudem bietet die Laborsituation im Living Studio den Künstler_innen die Möglichkeit neue Arbeitsweisen auszuprobieren, das Publikum einzubinden, mit anderen Kunstschaffenden zu kooperieren oder Strategien der Selbstvermarktung auszuloten. So lassen sich einerseits Potenziale entdecken, anderseits Schwierigkeiten identifizieren, aber vor allem wird dem Austausch und der Zusammenarbeit Raum gegeben.

Venue: frei_raum Q21 exhibition space
We proudly announce 17 artists, who will participate at the second edition of 'Living Studios'.

The latest edition of the art project 'Living Studio' transforms frei_raum Q21 exhibition space at MuseumsQuartier Wien into work places for artists, which are open to public.

The projects of the artists can be experienced and give an insight into creative work processes. After two weeks of working and creating at the public space frei_raum Q21 exhibition space, the artworks will be presented in an exhibition.

Ususally at common exhibitions final results are displayed, while the process of creating and making art remains in the dark. In contrast to this the project 'Living Studio' approaches to give a glimpse into the activities of artists, to show the processes of creating art and to strengthen the understanding of art away from museums. This also stimulates the dialogue between artists and art-consuments and offers an easy access to the field of arts in general.

Furthermore the situation of having a lab offers the artists to try out different ways of working, to invite the public to partcipate and to cooperate with other artists. Also strategies of advertising themselves can be experienced by the artists. This helps to figure out potentials on the one hand and to identify difficulties on the other hand. Especially exchange and cooperation finds room at 'Living Studio'.

With Fear / Eine Mahnwache für Monster

Eine immersive Installation von Claudia Six.

Denk an die Angst vor dem Monster unter deinem Bett, vor den Schatten auf der Straße, vor der Spinne in deiner Dusche, vor den Geistern in deinem Kopf, und vor denen deiner Vergangenheit oder deiner Zukunft.

Stell dir einen Raum vor in dem sich all deine Ängste versammeln, und du bist mittendrin. Nun erzähl’ mir von deinen Ängsten und davon, wer du glaubst zu sein und wer du sein willst.

Und dann lass uns Mahnwache halten. Eine Kerze anzünden für unsere Dunkelheit.

Gemeinsam kreieren wir einen Raum der aus unseren Geschichten besteht, aus unseren Ängsten und den Geistern, die uns begleiten.

Erzähle mir deine Geschichte: www.claudiasix.com

With Fear / A vigil for monsters

An immersive Installation by Claudia Six.

Think about the fear of the monsters under your bed, the monsters on the streets, in your house and in your head. Your fear of the ghosts in the cellar, of the ones from the past and from the future.

Imagine all of them together, in one room and you inside that room.
Can you sit with them for a while?
Now tell me about your fears. About the person you think you are and the one you want to become. Bring your ghosts from the past.

And let‘s light a candle together, facing our monsters and shed some tears, burying our ghosts.

Claudia Six is creating a room out of your fears and stories. (and out of her own, because these are the ones she knows best)
Share your fears: www.claudiasix.com

You are also invited to bring votive offerings for your fears.
Let’s create this imaginary moment together.

#withfear #letsbeafraidtogether #iamyouare #claudiasix

****************************************************

Artist Bio
Claudia Six was raised in a very small Austrian town surrounded by mountains and forests. As the only child in the neighbourhood, she soon discovered her deep connection with strange things. Be it the spooky old cat-lady next door, baby frogs in the forest, invisible pigs in the cellar, and much more, she found herself bonding with entities and fantasies. At art school, where she studied silkscreen printing and textile/graphic design, she discovered that many other strange creatures live in her imagination. Since then, her first aim has been to get these creatures out of her head and into real life. She does this through sculptures, performances, installations and drawings.

Die Gruppenausstellung FULL COURT DESIRE zeigt acht junge Künstlerinnen und Künstler mit provokanten, hemmungslosen aber auch melancholischen und kritisch diskursiven Arbeiten.

Unter dem Begriff des Verlangens (DESIRE) gebündelt, befassen sich die aktuellen Werke mit menschlichen Abgründen und den tiefsten Sehnsüchten. Das Verborgene, Verbotene und Unausgesprochene unserer Gesellschaft und Zeit ist in dieser Popup-Ausstellung allgegenwärtig. Nichts scheint unmöglich.

The group show FULL COURT DESIRE shows eight young artists with provocative, uninhibited but also melancholic and critically discursive works.

Concentrated on the concept of desires, the current works deal with human abysses and their deepest desires. The hidden, the forbidden and the unspoken of our society and time are omnipresent in this pop-up exhibition. Nothing seems impossible.

Disco Vitae - Sebastian Schager - Bud Art Room

Exhibition: 
SEP 24 - SEP 29, 2019
Location: 
Parallel Vienna, Lassalestrasse 5, 1020 Vienna

Jan Arnold Gallery curator and artist Sebastian Schager will present an Artist Statement at the Parallel Art Fair 2019. - Sponsored by Bud Beers.

Disco Vitae
1,5x3m, acrylic paint, spray paint on canvas
Sebastian Schager 2019

Artist statement
King or king regnant, rēx, rājan, ríg, reiks – however you call it is the title given to a male monarch in a variety of contexts. The Kingdom is established through power, brute force and all means needed to stay in power. Sebastian Schagers interpretation of the topic is separated into three 1,5x1m (Toal of 1,5x3m) canvases painted in highly detailed stencil technique. Each part of the painting provokes the audience in a different way. The center piece for example depicts a mutilated greek goddess with a sword, kind of meshed up the King Arthur legend. Greek style in art history was often misused, especially in neo classicism to refer to terms justice or fairness in politics. As a female part in a world dominated by men stands as a symbol poking into gender issues. The right side of the right panel depicts the kings armory borrowed from an Italian pilaster in roman style with military trophies from a tomb of a war hero. The huge battle scene from an antique sarcophagus covering almost three-fourths of the Painting shows a battle scene between Romans and Barbarians – Remember, barbarians can be any member of a nation judged by some to be less civilized or orderly ...so all the others! On the left the self-proclamed King himself on his holden throne totally shot up – an elbow strike for all hyper ethic kings out there.

In general the piece including the title “Disco Vitae" what means as much as "I live to learn" might be a psychogram of mankind described through the eyes of an artist including a good amount of question-marks and a few punches to the stomach. The sound and light installation, the Friedrich like arranged "broken ice-sheet" lockers as well as the shards from beer bottles with Damocles Sword fuse to a researching into vertigo.

Info
PARALLEL VIENNA takes place for the seventh time in Vienna from 24th to 29th September 2019 and sticks to its approach of using temporarily vacant buildings as a presentation platform for contemporary art. This year PARALLEL VIENNA takes place in a former office building at LASSALLESTRASSE 5, 1020 Vienna. Instead of the usual booths at art fairs, each exhibitor occupies a separate room of the building in which the exhibition is presented. These site-specific artworks and interventions are the trademark of PARALLEL VIENNA and make the fair a unique and alternative exhibition format outside the “white cube".

Von Insekten zerfressen, von Pilzen gefärbt. Kurt Foit arbeitet mit Hölzern, die Geschichten erzählen. Frass-Spuren im Holz wirken wie Schrift oder Architektur und entfalten eine ornamentale Wucht. Kurt Foit bindet seine Hölzer in die schlichte, geometrisierte Form des rechtwinkeligen Rahmens und schafft so eigenwillige, selbstständige und sich selbst verteidigende Wesen.
Kurt Foit lebt und arbeitet in Wien und in Wiener Neustadt

Eaten away by insects, tinged by fungi - Kurt Foit works with timbers that tell a story. Feeding traces in the wood appear like script or architecture and unfold ornamental effects. Foit embeds his timbers in the plain geometric form of rectangular frames, thus creating idiosyncratic, autonomous entities, which stand their own ground.
Kurt Foit lives and works in Vienna and Wiener Neustadt
