Desiderio Gallery presents a duo-exhibition by Austrian artists Chris Murzek and Emanuel Ehgartner.

The working process of both is determined by an interest in methods of coincidence and examination.

Series "Abrasion" (Emanuel Ehgartner) and "Binary Rooms" (Chris Murzek) combined

Murzek’s work focuses on the interface of digital and analogue processes, where codes and algorithms serve as the starting points of his artistic expressions and are then transformed into prints, paintings and drawings.

Ehgartner on the other hand is interested in the threshold between functionality and aesthetic.

He collects objects or structures from the street - which often come from an industrial or technical context - to form minimal sculptures or wall pieces.

For the show BINARYYIELDPOINTCATALYSATOR the two young artists intentionally choose mainly recent works which emphasize the similarities between their artistic practice.

Also the title is kind of a readymade: Together with the curator Farshido Larimian they played around with terms from a technical context and came up with this monstrosity of a word.
