"Reevaluation & Silence"

Opening: Thursday, 26 May 2011, 19:00
Exhibition Dates: 27 May – 16 July 2011

An artwork, that is manufactured following the pattern of innovation is not original for repeating limitations of value, which have been in place for a long time and is thus constituting tradition.

But as innovation is THE central cultural demand and burden of art, it seems likely to make it’s inherent subversive mechanisms (the negative adaptation*) allegorically visible as stabilizing, reevaluating (positive or negative) patterns of action – in the hope of avoiding it.

My paintings are constructs of alleged scenarios of subversion, cultural mechanisms in a dissection glass : No Innovations, but new perspectives of « absolved » kinds of subversion.

*Sic. Boris Groys: Über das Neue. Versuch einer Kulturökonomie.
