The artists Ani Gurashvili and Lukas Kaufmann will guide through the exhibition at Kunsthalle Wien Museumsquartier and share insights into their working methods. Following the tour, the artist Albin Bergström will read from a text written for the occasion.
Both artists create ethereal pictorial spaces through contrasting strategies. Ani Gurashvili‘s paintings, drawing inspiration from surrealism, science fiction, and feminist theory, create mysterious visions of a world full of fantasies of other-than-human agencies. Lukas Maria Kaufmann‘s series of watercolors and prints develop a depth through folding that extends into psychological and spatial dimensions.
The guided tour is free with an exhibition ticket. We kindly ask you to register via email@example.com or directly at the box office in Kunsthalle Wien Museumsquartier.
Albin Bergström (born 1992, Gothenburg, Sweden, lives in Vienna), is an artist and writer living. As point of departure, his works often take domestic objects, such as chairs, cups or cutlery etc. Through fusing them with additional materials or “images”, he expands the possible narratives and meanings of these seemingly functional and/or decorative objects.
Ani Gurashvili (born 1990 in Tbilisi, lives in Vienna) studied Media Art at the Tbilisi State Academy of Arts and Painting with Johanna Kandl, Thomas Zipp und Henning Bohl at the University of Applied Arts Vienna.
Lukas Maria Kaufmann (born 1993 in Klagenfurt, Austria, lives in Vienna) studied Architecture at the Technical University Vienna and Transmedia Art at the University of Applied Arts Vienna with Brigitte Kowanz.
