Visit the exhibition "the divine comedy" curated by Salvatore Viviano at gallery Raum mit Licht, Vienna.

The concepts of carnival—masks, floats, freaks, inversion, otherness—form a shell to inspect blurred lines: tragedy becoming comedy, comedy becoming tragedy, a dismantling of hierarchies—gloomy-gay imaginings of offhand comedic maelstroms and ultraviolet mental alibis. -- (from essay by Estelle Hoy)

MIDWAY upon the journey of our life I found myself within a forest dark, For the straightforward pathway had been lost.–La Divina Commedia, Inferno, Canto I

Lost, I was. Then, Julia, Bruce, Gabriele, Booze and Prince came my way.

The (Divine) Comedy brings your best dreams and worst nightmares together. Your life is the stage, you won the Oscar for the Best Supporting Role.

(Car)mirror on the wall, who’s the naughtiest of them all? The Spell as Art Practice.

Divine is big, bigger than life, someone says she died, but who should we trust? Well, your guts, what else?

Divine is the Queen of Comedy, like Dante was the Queen of the Italian language: queens, queens every-where, but why too many kingdoms then?

Sick and tired of such a dichotomy? The artists could help you. Masks will fall.

Your dating app profile says you’re a bottom. Sweet, but how many lies are you capable of saying on public television?

Can you write a Billboard hit? Can you rule a country? Masks will fall.Comedy, what a succulent risotto, what a fat lasagna.

Raum mit Licht, The Gift that Keeps on Giving by Gabriele Edlbauer and Julia Goodman

Are you vaccinated? You will probably be eaten by nasty seagulls anyway. You are welcome.

And because we believe in the power of one-liners, of distorted visions and of true lies, we will leave you with a cryptic question that you will have the rest of your life to answer: what time is it?(town), July 2021.
