Every second and fourth Thursday of the month at 5:30 pm you can discover the exhibition Rene Matić / Oscar Murillo. JAZZ. together with our art educators and discuss the context and background of the exhibited works.

The guided tours are free of charge and will be held in German.

With: Carola Fuchs  Andrea Hubin • Michaela Lankes  Michael Simku • Daliah Touré  Martin Walkner

Encompassing painterly gestures, installation, film, photography, and sound, each element on show is in dialogue, shaped by Murillo’s black canvas installation. Together, through dissection and reconciliation, both artists explore the impossibilities and contradictions that arise from notions of desire, visibility and opacity. JAZZ. nods to concepts of desire, of consumption of the Other, it plays with performativity while retaining the right to opacity.

Working with fragments – made in different spaces and time periods, and moved from place to place only to be stitched together or reworked layer by layer – has long been at the core of Murillo’s work. For the series(untitled) aesthetic structure, he lines up square pieces of fabric consisting of fragments of previously used canvases. Matić’s four black-and-white and four color 35mm images (out of) place also show fragmented states, depicted in constant movement, flowing between figuration and abstraction, obscuring vision and gaze.
