EXHIBITION José Yaque "CALMA" und Anneliese Schrenk "IL TITOLO É IL TITOLO"
AUSSTELLUNGSDAUER 20.01. BIS 16.03.2019 / UNTIL 16.03.2019
José Yaque (*1985) exhibiting at the Cuban pavilion of La Biennale di Venezia in 2017, is a representative of the young generation of Cuban artists, whose high quality works emerged of the big social-political change that Cuba is facing right now, 60 years after the end of Fidel Castros revolution. His often large-scale paintings convey strong dynamics. Like seismic waves their colors seem to join, as if static doesn't exist anymore. His works appear to be snap-shots, catching and freezing the moment. It's not the "Dark Side Of The Moon" but our planet that Yaque is focussing on: Gradients and textures allow us to delve into the mysterious orogenetic and epirogenic processes in the earth's crust, the vast interior of earth below our eyes. So we are able to see strata and tectonics conflicts, volcanism and earthquakes that are usual in the artist's homeland Cuba. Looking at José Yaques works painted in dark tones, one seems to have a clear view of the veins of tin, copper and other precious metals hidden in the rocks. Saying freedom is the most important urge for and within his work, José Yaque's title for his first solo exhibition in Austria is "CALMA". The silence, calm serenity can be understood as a mental state, through which we are able to discover in a concentrated and open way some-thing new - as concentrated and open, as the work of the young Cuban artist.
Anneliese Schrenk (*1979) - analogous to the title - places the object itself in the center of her exhibition and combines various design objects and installations to a unique room situation. It seems at first sight to the viewer, that it is free from unnecessary details and thus promptly is leading to a false conclusion: What is here assigned to the abstract is a turning away from it! Rather Anneliese Schrenk's works are creating a connection to the physical. Her piece "Ohne Titel (Verstrickungen)" functions as a network of braided leather, that is striving in all directions. It as well is covering furniture that is below and captures a main idea of of Schrenks works: the camouflaging as part of her concept. Other loosely installed metal objects in the room follow this idea, they are as well a fusion of different elements coming from various contexts and thus follow the idea of the ready-made. "Il titolo é il titolo" is capturing a sense of rawness and brutality. It is free of distractions and uses the power of camouflaging and therefore finds its way quickly to the awareness of the beholder.
