A Memorial for Wolfgang Erbens

´´The path of the loner Erbens´´, with these words begins the autobiography of the Viennese painter Wolfgang Erbens. Since the artist did not want to submit to any marketing at the time, the majority of his works are still undiscovered by the art scene.


Erbens´ art ranges from expressionism to surrealism to linear abstract art. He lived and worked in Vienna, but many of his works were created on his study trips through the provinces and abroad. Thus, there are works with motifs in Salzburg, France, Italy, Morocco or the Caribbean. For his work, Wolfgang Erbens received the ´´Körner Prize´´ in 1957, the ´´Silver Rome Medal´´ in 1958 and the ´´Silver Cross of Honor of the City of Vienna´´ in 1989.

Manifesto of fragility

The 16th edition of the Lyon Biennale positions fragility at the heart of a generative form of resistance that is emboldened by the past, responsive to the present, and primed for the future. It imagines a world where vulnerability is actively engaged as a foundation for empowerment, rather than shunned as a sign of weakness. Word, image, sound, and movement culminate in communities that come together to draft a manifesto for a world that is blamelessly fragile. 


Manifesto of fragility is a reminder of the cycles of history and the continuous ebb and flow of prosperity and decline. It is a sobering invitation for us to ponder the precariousness of our human condition, from the brittleness of our own bodies, to the vulnerability of the entire planet and everything in between. In acknowledging the undeniable fleetness of life in all its forms, we can allow ourselves the possibility of harnessing fragility’s emancipatory power as a way towards a new form of inclusivity, one that is not based on difference, but rather on the only truly universal quality that binds us all: the inevitability of our frail humanity, and the incredible promise that this entails.

THE BEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF BEING

Group Exhibition in the Pashmin Art Gallery Hamburg with

GERD REHME | CHRISTINA CZARNOWSKE | BARBARA BIENEMANN


The goddess Maia was the patron saint of fertility and beauty. We owe the name of the beautiful spring month of May to her. With the ethos of the Greek goddess in mind, we have given the May group exhibition at the Pashmin Art Gallery Hamburg the motto “The Tolerable Lightness of Being”, as art is the best diplomat of lightness.

BODY OF THE OBJECT AS/IN ART: EUROPEAN ART IN CHINESE ART SPACE

23.09. - 23.11.2021 

The 2nd Chongqing International Modern and Contemporary Art Exhibition


More than 250 works by 37 artists from 14 European countries is exhibited including paintings, sculptures, art installations, etc.


The definition of art in the 20th century has changed the whole concept of art. It is the perspective of the artist and the art viewer which determines how we can call an object a work of art. How do we look at the Body of the Object as/in Art? The number of ways to achieve the mode of perfection in making art is “at least” equal to the imagination of each artist and “most probably” much more than the number of artists in the world.

Squek Carnwath - What befor Came After

New York, October 12, 2015 – Jane Lombard Gallery presents What Before Came After, Squeak Carnwath´s first solo exhibition in New York City in over a decade. The exhibition features a selection of Carnwath´s paintings and cigar-box sculptures spanning 25 years of practice. Active in the Bay Area since the 1970s, alongside artists such as Viola Frey and Jay DeFeo, Carnwath has developed a signature style that incorporates meticulously applied layers of oil paint with text, repeated symbolic iconography, and abstract patterns to create complex works which gradually reveal her personal exploration of representation, memory, and the human experience. The artist will be present for the opening reception on October 22 from 6-8 pm.

Jean Benoit Pouliot:Artist in Residence

Unsettling Images

In its essence, my work revolves around different formal issues, such as composition and how the spectator reads an image. My paintings focus on the contrasts arising between what is organic and what is geometric. The composition of my work generally consists of several layers that generate subtle push-and-pull effects.

I recently started using some of my paintings to explore the potential trajectories of an image. Given the numerous filters that synthesize and compress the information by which we understand the world, I seek to explore the space that exists between physical and virtual reality (or between the object and its representation). By shifting, deforming and digitally modifying these images, I will examine how a painting undergoes several transmutations. Furthermore, the process through which visual information is continuously synthesized applies not only to images, but also to other spheres of our society. As such, it is undoubtedly fertile ground for further exploration.
