Her work rotates the last few years around repetition and dynamic, monochrome abstract forms. She uses different materials and media like plaster, clay, ink, paper, fabric and much more. Lately she creates larger size artworks, choosing as surfaces of artistic expression the streets and also abandoned industrial spaces in Greece, trying to interact with the place, the space and the building itself, often deriving influences from the elements that surround it.

Stefanie Koscher - Screenshots of Despair

Vernissage: 
MAY 7 2019 | 7-10pm
Exhibition: 
MAY 8 - JUNE 10 2019
Location: 
Jan Arnold Gallery | MQ, Q21 Showrooms | Museumsplatz 1, 1070 Vienna

In „Screenshots of Despair“ zeigt die Multimedia Künstlerin und Musikerin Stefanie Koscher eine Auswahl an Collagen und Mischtechnik-Arbeiten, die über die letzten 10 Jahre während ihrer Aufenthalte in verschiedenen Teilen der Welt (NYC, Berlin, Wien, Kärnten) entstanden sind. Durch Photoshop-artige, analoge Komposition sorgfältig ausgewählter Bilder versuchen die Collagen eine neue Art utopische Ordnung in die chaotische Flut an visuellen Reizen, denen man im virtuellen Raum ausgesetzt ist, zu bringen. Die Bilder formen so oft dissonante, verfremdete und eigenartige Zusammenhänge, welche den Betrachter zu Versuch auffordern, diese auf individueller Ebene zu entschlüsseln.

Als „Screenshots des Unbewussten“ beschäftigen sich die klein- bis mittelformatigen Bilder vorwiegend mit Grenzen und Widersprüchen. Für die Künstlerin sind Collagen ein Mittel zur Suche nach klaren Linien, Neudefinition derselben, sowie Werkzeug zum Sichtbarmachen von Dissonanzen. Die Komposition von ikonographischen Abbildungen, die aus einem jahrelang sorgfältig angesammelten Fundus stammen, scheinen nicht selten ein Licht auf das Absurde. Es sollen so auch immer neuartige Zusammenhänge inszeniert werden. Die Bilder sind oft als Reiz bzw. als Irritation angelegt und behalten sich trotzdem oder gerade deshalb auch immer einen gewissen Grad an Humor bei.

Die inhaltliche Thematik ist von ganz unterschiedlichem Charakter und zieht sich von Weltpolitik, Psychologie, Medizin, alte und neue Medien über gesellschaftspolitische Fragen bis hin zum Entertainment- und Showbusiness. Der Einfluss virtueller Medien auf die menschliche Wahrnehmung und Psyche bleibt, wie auch in den performativen und transmedialen Arbeiten der Künstlerin, ein Schwerpunkt.

Als Materialien dienen vorwiegend Acryl, Papier, Marker auf Karton oder Holzfaserplatte und sind oft oubjet trouvé.

In „Screenshots of Despair“ the multimedia artist and musician Stefanie Koscher shows a selection of collage and mixed media works she created over the last decade in different parts of the world (NYC, Berlin, Wien, Carinthia). Inspired by photoshop-style layering, the works show analogue compositions of mindfully selected images, trying to bring some sort of utopian order into a chaotic overflow of visual stimuli, that we are exposed to even more so in our everyday virtual realm. The results of this process are often dissonant, alienated and strange and put a spotlight on the absurd. The endproducts become some sort of connective tissue to the collective unconscious, and ask the spectator to decrypt context intuitively.

Special event: Konzert und Midissage: APR 5

Die Gruppenausstellung „transformative embodiments“, zeigt einen Querschnitt junger künstlerischer Positionen, die sich insbesondere mit dem eigenen sowie fremden Körpern über das Medium der Fotografie auseinandersetzen.

In den performativen Selbstbildnissen von MANUEL CARREON LOPEZ dient der eigene Körper als flüchtiges skulpturales Material, das durch das Übersetzen in Bilder und den daraus entstehenden Fotoobjekten zu einer dauerhaften Komposition fixiert wird.

ANNAMARIA KOWALSKY lotet in ihre Selbstporträt-Serie „Anonymus“ mithilfe von Fotografie und Malerei die Grenzen zwischen multiplen verdichteten Bildebenen aus. Der scheinbar freigegebene Blick auf den sich halb abgewandten Körper wird durch Schichten von Farbe verdeckt, um im nächsten Moment wieder durchbrochen zu werden.

THERESA WEY fotografiert vorwiegend in autobiografischem Kontext. Portraits begreift sie als Zeugnisse von Begegnungen und experimentiert mit unterschiedlichen Möglichkeiten, sich und andere in ihren Bildern sichtbar zu machen um über Beziehungen und Intimität zu reflektieren.

KATRIN HANGA entwickelt mit ihren Bildern eine individuelle poetische Bildsprache, in der sich Körper und Blick mit der Materialität des fotografischen Mediums verschränken.

KURZ CVs:

English:

The group exhibition transformative embodiments shows a cross-section of young artistic positions that deal in particular with one‘s own and other bodies through the photographic medium.

MANUEL CARREON LOPEZ performatively creates self-portraits, that serve as fugitive sculptural material. The body is fixed into a permanent composition by translating the images into the resulting photographic objects.

KATRIN HANGA uses her pictures to develop an individual poetic imagery, in which body and gaze intertwine with the materiality of the photographic technique.

ANNAMARIA KOWALSKY explores the boundaries between condensed image planes in her self-portrait series Anonymous through photography and painting. The seemingly frank view onto the averted body is hidden in paint, to be cut through again.

THERESA WEY photographs mainly in autobiographical contexts. Portraits become testimonies of encounters, to make herself and others visible in images that reflect relationships and intimacy.

It’s summer and an unusual boiling heat in Vienna. You and your fellow bleary-eyed colleague are standing in front of a supermarket. Wondering faces. Closed. It’s Sunday. And you didn’t even notice. 

Situations like these are as natural to ImPulsTanz - International Dance Festival employees as breathing. Working intense hours with not enough sleep creates a certain type of bonding. Connected by their engagement at their shared working space and the strong interaction of their different departments at the festival, led to the idea to host an exhibition by a bunch of colleagues, who also lead artistic lives as visual artists. 

A group exhibition which brings on display individual artistic statements and points of views, connected through the imaginary collegial mind.

Adda-Matinée & Presentation:
Atmospheric transfer and discussion about the first public spaces in modern India
Sun, Oct 21, 2018 / 11am
Location: Depot, Breite Gasse 3, 1070 Vienna
Guest: Bhaswati Bhattacharya, historian and ethnographer, Georg August University Göttingen

The Democratic Club ist ein Dialog zwischen zwei einzigartigen Institutionen: Indian Coffee House und Wiener Kaffeehaus. Beide waren während ihrer Blütezeit wichtige Orte täglicher Geselligkeit und intellektuellen Austauschs. Nach der Unabhängigkeit Indiens wurde das Coffee House – einst organisiert durch den British Raj – zu einer Genossenschaft umgebaut. Als offener Diskussionsraum trug das Indian Coffee House nicht nur zur Entwicklung der jungen Demokratie bei, sondern zog darüber hinaus die öffentliche Sphäre ins Innere. Die stetigen Veränderungen in der Gesellschaft, begleitet vom Aufkommen internationaler Kaffeeketten, hinterlassen zunehmend Erosionsspuren an diesen öffentlichen Innenräumen.

The Democratic Club is a dialogue between two particular institutions, the Indian Coffee House and the Viennese coffee house. Both were important places of everyday sociability and intellectual exchange during their heyday. After India’s independence, the coffee houses – formerly organised under the auspices of the British Raj – were transformed into a cooperative society. As an open space for discussion this contributed to the development of the young democracy by extending the public sphere into the inside. Ongoing changes within society, accompanied by the emergence of international coffee chains, has already left traces of erosion on these public interiors.

"Ich arbeite an meinen Barrieren", sagt der junge Zeichner, Musiker und Performance-Künstler Philipp Muerling. Durch eine neurodegenerative Krankheit ist er motorisch eingeschränkt und seit einigen Jahren auf den Rollstuhl angewiesen. Radikal und ungeschönt, verletzlich und nackt stellt er daher den eigenen Körper immer wieder ins Zentrum seiner Kunst. In Performances und Videos konfrontiert er sich und das Publikum mit den Barrieren und dem Scheitern, das ihm dieser Körper auferlegt, macht sich zum Modell und Objekt serieller, studienartiger Selbstportraits in Bleistift und lotet den erzwungenen Rhythmus und die Langsamkeit dieses Körpers in der Dekonstruktion digitaler Musikstücke aus.

"I'm working on my barriers," says the young artist, musician and performer Philipp Muerling. Because of a neurodegenerative disease, he is in need of a wheelchair for several years. Radical and unadorned, vulnerable and naked, therefore, he puts his own body again and again into the center of his art. In performances and videos, he confronts himself and the audience with the barriers and failure that this body imposes on him, turns himself into a model and object of serial, study-like self-portraits in pencil and explores the enforced rhythm and slowness of this body in the deconstruction of digital music pieces out.

An artist living and working in Brooklyn NY. Early on he picked up skateboarding, and he immersed himself within the subculture. Designing tshirts, skateboard graphics, and skateboarding in local shop videos. He eventually went on to design over 200+ board graphics for skateboard companies from Norway, Russia, England, and all over the US and rest of the world. His art as well as himself skateboarding appeared in numerous skateboard magazines including Thrasher.
Adopting the moniker of Wizard Skull and abandoning freelance design work, he began wheat pasting his art all around New York. One of his most often wheat pastes was "Sexy Ronald", a buff version of Ronald McDonald wearing only underwear with fries popping out of them. People began photographing and sharing images of it on social media which led to the image going viral several times, being bootlegged and sold on tshirts in Thailand. This also led to his art being exposed to a larger audience.

AIKO - Artist in Residence #Streetartpassage

Exhibition: 
Jun 28 - Jul 22, 2018

AIKO was born and raised in Tokyo before moving to New York City in the mid-90′s. Already creating art since a young age, her art career in NYC began when she started working for Takashi Murakami. She apprenticed in Murakami’s studio in Brooklyn and worked for him until the late 90′s going on to a direct a digital biography on the artist (“Superflat” 1998). AIKO continued to practice her own art and after leaving Murakami’s studio graduated from The New School University where she finished her MFA Media Studies and later met up with two American artists, the three of them would come to establish the group now known as FAILE. Creating work within the collective locally and abroad for a number of years, she moved on and established herself as Lady AIKO in 2006. AIKO continues to create work in the studio as well as public space. She is acclaimed in the contemporary art world and well-respected within the international graffiti and street art scene.

Current Exhibitions are “BEYOND THE STREET” May 2018 in Los Angeles USA as well as the solo exhibitions “BUNNY IN THE HOUSE” at WALLWORKS Gallery NY Mar 2018, and “LADY GO” April 2018 at Shizuoka City Tokaido Hiroshige Museum JAPAN.

She worked with Banksy on “Exit Through the Gift Shop” in 2010. Her large scale works indoors and outdoors are installed in many cities, including Miami’s Wynwood Walls in 2009, New York City’s Bowery Wall in 2013, and Coney Art Walls in 2015/2016/2017, all three curated by Jeffrey Deitch. AIKO has also been involved in a large collection of group shows, from “AnimamixBiennale” at Shanghai’s MoCA in 2009 to “Edo Pop” at Japan Society NYC in 2013, ‘Some Place Like Home” at Rumney Guggenheim Gallery NY in 2015 to her more recent solo show, “Sweet Heart” at The Outsiders Gallery in the UK in 2014.

Inquiries to Sebastian Schager

Anselm Pavlik - µ [my]

Vernissage: 
April 4, 2018 | 7-10pm
Exhibition: 
April 5 - 29, 2018
Location: 
Jan Arnold Gallery | MQ, Q21 Showrooms | Museumsplatz 1, 1070 Vienna

Opening hours by arrangement at info@anselmpavlik.com

In der Unschärfe gründet die Ästhetik des Lebens, der Kunst und der Musik, welche das Unnahbare spannend und interessant macht. Die Installation μ [my] thematisiert die Schönheit und Kraft der Unschärfe im Entdecken und Erklären unserer Welt. Anselm Pavlik nutzt in seinem Video das optische Problem der Tiefenschärfe und überlagert es mit zufällig angesteuerten Kompositionsfragmenten. Die Arbeit verweist auf unsere befangene Wahrnehmung der Welt, die sich von unserer sehr persönlichen, subjektiven und intrinsischen Perzeption, bis hin zu wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnissen, Erklärungen und Lösungen zieht. Unsere Grenzen die Ganzheit und die Gleichheit wahrzunehmen zwingt uns sich mit Details, den einzelnen Schichten, zu beschäftigen. Überlagert oder setzt man die Schichten wieder zusammen ergibt das oft ein teilweise korrektes Gesamtbild.

Anselm Pavlik lebt und arbeitet in Wien. Seine Arbeit beginnt mit der Betrachtung der Natur: Form, Struktur, Klang, Farbe, Bewegung, Wirkung, Zeit. Auf der Suche nach einer umfassenden Wiedergabe seiner Beobachtungen spannt er den Bogen zwischen bildender Kunst, Musik, Film und Naturwissenschaft. Die Komponenten verschmelzen zu einem Gesamtkunstwerk und werden zu einer eigenen Sprache, die sich in eine individuelle Wahrnehmung der Natur auflöst und als Arbeitsthematik einfließt. Es entstanden Rauminstallationen, Filme, Zeichnungen und Kompositionen.

In the blur builds the aesthetics of life, art and music, which makes the unapproachable fascinating and interesting. The installation μ [my] broaches the issue of beauty and strength of the blur in the discovery and explanation of our world. Anselm Pavlik uses the optical problem of depth of focus and overlays randomly chosen fragments of composition in his video. This work refers to our biased perception of the world, which draws a line from our personal, subjective and intrinsic cognition, to scientific knowledge, explanations and solutions. Our limitation in perceiving the wholeness and sameness forces us to deal with details and each layer individually. Putting all layers back together often creates only a partially true overall picture.

Anselm Pavlik lives and works in Vienna. His work starts with the observation of nature: form, structure, sound, colour, movement, effect and time. In search for an extensive rendition of his observations he ties visual art, music, film and natural science together. These components merge into a synthesis which becomes its own language that concludes in an indivudual perception of nature and is being integrated as a working theme. The results are room installations, films, drawings and compositions.

Z - Interfering with Nature

Exhibition: 
March 9 - 31, 2018

Jan Arnold Gallery | MQ, Q21 Showrooms | Museumsplatz 1, 1070 Vienna

Opulent and fragile, this sculpture is indeed inflated. Would it not be for it's source of power this would merely be a heap of garbage bags. The sum of the plastic parts create an animated greater whole. Z would like to demonstrate how the best things in life are finite. Produced with a minimal budget, Z found plastic bags to be ubiquitous and dirt cheap though weighing heavy on her ecological conscience.

Meist beginnt alles mit einer Idee.
Diese wird weiterentwickelt. Oder auch nicht so recht. Dann widmen wir uns anderen Dinge, vergessen scheinbar woran wir gerade arbeiten. Brüten eigentlich etwas aus. Dann stürzen wir uns in die Arbeit. Und Scheitern? Stecken fest. Verwerfen. Modifizieren. Experimentieren. Und beginnen von vorn. Machen weiter.
Kreativität ist ein Prozess. In Ausnahmefällen kann es ein Ereignis sein, bei dem die kreative Idee wie ein Blitz einschlägt. Es ist fast selbstverständlich, dass das Resultat nicht der ursprünglichen Idee entspricht. Geben wir Zufall, Irrtum und Scheitern Raum im kreativen Prozess, kann Unvorhergesehenes passieren und originelle Ideen entstehen.

Das Atelier wechselt den Ort, in eine neue Umgebung. Im Rahmen des Kunstprojekts living studio wird der frei_raum Quartier21 exhibition space in über ein Dutzend Arbeitsplätze für KünstlerInnen transformiert. Vor Ort und für die BesucherInnen einsehbar und erlebbar, werden die Kunstschaffenden an ihren Projekten arbeiten.
Die entstandenen Werke werden nach zwei Wochen öffentlichen Arbeitens in einer Gemeinschaftsausstellung präsentiert.

Zusammenfinden werden sich KünstlerInnen verschiedenster Sparten und Arbeitsweisen. Den BesucherInnen wird ein Einblick in die unterschiedlichen kreativen Schaffens-prozesse gewährt, welche im Normalfall im Verborgenen bleiben.
Dabei stellen sich Fragen, wie kann Zusammenarbeit im künstlerischen Schaffen aussehen? Lässt sich Kreativität planen? Mithilfe welcher Bedingungen kann Innovation auch planvoll passieren?

Usually everything starts with an idea.
The idea evolves. Or not really. Then we devote ourselves to other things, seemingly forgetting what we are working on. Actually hatching something. Then we plunge into the work. And fail? Are stuck. Discard. Modify. Experiment. And start over. Continue.
Creativity is a process. In exceptional cases, it can be an event in which the creative idea strikes like lightning. It goes without saying that the result does merely correspond to the original idea. If we give chance, error and failure space in the creative process, unforeseen events can happen and original ideas emerge.

The studio changes its venue into a new environment. As part of the art project living studio, frei_raum Quartier21 exhibition space is being transformed into over a dozen workplaces for artists. The artists will work on their projects on site and for the visitors to see and experience.
The produced works will be presented in a joint exhibition after two weeks of public work.

Artists from different disciplines and working methods will come together. Visitors are given an insight into the different creative processes that normally remain hidden.
This raises questions such as: how can cooperation in artistic work look like? Can creativity be planned? Under what conditions will innovation happen?
