In her solo exhibition at Bildraum 07, artist Nika Kupyrova explores the character of the sculptress Henrietta Savernake from Agatha Christie’s novel “The Hollow”.

Taking inspiration from the classic ‘artist documentary film’ genre as much as from ASMR social media clips, “Woman in Green” is an exploration of mythology around the artist’s figure.

“The Hollow” (Agatha Christie, 1946) is a classic country house mystery and yet an unusual novel for its time because of its many female protagonists and psychology-driven narrative.

Imprisoned in their social roles, women of “The Hollow” are expected to behave according to convention: the dazzling Hollywood actress; the devoted wife; the aristocratic and witty lady of the house; the stubbornly independent working girl.

The key to the puzzle is in understanding that the characters’ true motivations are in contradiction to their assigned identities: at first glance a murder mystery, “The Hollow” is actually a feminist and social critique. 

Within this variety of characters, the exhibition focuses on the sculptress Henrietta Savernake.

Appropriating parts of the novel that constitute Henrietta’s inner dialogue and her yearning and failure to realize her sculpture, “Woman in Green” examines an image of a woman artist as seen from the outside.

Moody, coffee-drinking, introspective Henrietta is being observed — by the novel’s author and its readers and now by the exhibition audience.

New at Munchies Art Club magazine

Curated by Bjorn Stern for Galerie Kandlhofer, the exhibition "Weltgeist" examines the influence of humanism and its development over time. Seven international artists, including Janine Antoni, Reza Aramesh, Alejandro Jodorowsky, and the renowned late Hermann Nitsch, employ their individual techniques to shed light on the theme.
"Water" by Artist Vivian Greven at Neue Galerie Gladbeck
In her exhibition WATER, artist VIVIAN GREVEN reveals a series of large-scale paintings depicting different moments of birth. Greven paints birth explicitly, depicting it in itself, as an act of action. And despite the explicit pictorial subjects, it seems as if time stands still in the paintings: they hold something infinite.
Alfred Barsuglia at Gallery 3
Munchies Art Club is thrilled to share Alfredo Barsuglia's first solo exhibition "Pille" at Galerie3 in Austria features paintings, objects, and large pneumatic pills. The exhibition offers a unique and fantastic spatial experience, with clear and poetic image motifs and graffiti sprayed directly onto the gallery walls.
Darja Shatalova at Bildraum 07 Vienna
Our eyes, restlessly moving, almost dancing, follow the lines and diagonals shooting from the core in multiple directions. Every single line of colourful fabrics, hand-written expressive notes, tokens of systems, symbols or other visual aids imply a passionate, deep dive into unexplored topics. An information cluster instantly triggers our fantasy. What are these? The eager notes of an explorer, accounts from a diary, mental maps, or obsessive doodles with signs of automatism combined with an intentional loss of control?
