LA GRANDE BOUFFE

9 April – 21 May 2022

Group show with works by

Gretchen Andrew, Dejan Dukic, Julian Heuser and Reihaneh Hosseini

"Basically, after all, the whole of life consists only of side effects. The sand on the beach, the snow on the mountains. The love, the work. Even the bed; all side effects. As the cleric rightly says: vanitas vanitatis. Now eat!" 

Life is lacking any essence. This is explained by one of the four protagonists in Marco Ferreri's 1973 film "La Grande Bouffe". All that remains is mere gluttony, and with it nothing but vanity – in its original translation: nothingness. Similar to the film, the works of Gretchen Andrew, Dejan Dukic, Julian Heuser and Reihaneh Hosseini, in the joint presentation of their works, initially prepare the visitors a feast of accompanying phenomena. Unlike in the film, however, these are not simply outgrowths of sham-cultivated, organized and devastatingly accomplished abundances, but a disclosure of realities that elaborate essences. – Niklas Koschel


GEORG FRAUENSCHUH

at Elektrohalle Salon

7 May – 18 June 2022

In his paintings, Georg Frauenschuh (*1979) confronts the viewer with discontinuous surfaces composed of various motifs and pictorial spaces. For this, the Salzburg-born artist draws on various photographs as well as freely usable stock photos and clipart motifs, whose essence lies in reproduction and indistinguishability. Painterly, however, these are now upgraded to unique specimens. In turbulent appropriation, the painter understands them as set pieces of apparently not yet 5nally decided compositions. – Niklas Koschel
