What makes objects and objects memorable? And when do the corresponding memories cease to exist? Do memories even exist, without someone to share them with, without the place to which they belong?
On October 2, 1959, a man wandered across the screens of the United States, seeming not only to have lost his memory, but also to search in vain for his fellow human beings, who seemed to have disappeared off the face of the earth.
The first episode of the televisual series "The Twilight Zone" described man's fear of being alone.
Surrounded by inanimate things, these act as a medium between the real, material world and another (hallucinogenic) world.
What is presented to visitors as a scenario in the exhibition is a place halfway between two worlds.
On display are lush curtains and a massive play figure by Ann Muller followed by a line of sand peppered with "dodgy" beads and, slightly outside, intimate (body) parts by Ivana Kralj tucked away in vitrines as well as the light stripes of Lotta Hering, besieged by countless archaic ghostly figures of Franz Nigl, at best defended by Gelitin's recombined life forms preserved in glass jars and supported by a tabletop of recombined furniture parts cast in synthetic aspic, partially illuminated by a cocoon of thermoplastic.
Curated by Bjorn Stern for Galerie Kandlhofer, the exhibition "Weltgeist" examines the influence of humanism and its development over time.

In her exhibition WATER, artist VIVIAN GREVEN reveals a series of large-scale paintings depicting different moments of birth.

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?
