Artist talk: Das Verborgene im Augenscheinlichen
Artist talk as part of the exhibition “Das Verborgene im Augenscheinlichen”: Claudia Aigner, “Wiener Zeitung,” in conversation with Robert Staudinger and Albert Winkler
Photography as painting and not as documentation of reality. Photographed paintings that gesture to what lies behind them. In “La Nuit étoilée,” Jean-Paul Dumas-Grillet emphasizes that which is absent – something more comprehensive that we cannot consciously perceive. Robert Staudinger’s “heaven and hope” looks to the horizon and thus to the desire for the Beyond. And in “Relicts,” Albert Winkler fuses the remnants of affluent society together to form dense images.
