Kunsthalle Wien Podcast: Yane Calovski & Hristina Ivanoska

We had an in-depth conversation with the North Macedonian artist duo Yane Calovski & Hristina Ivanoska on their work for the exhibition No Feeling Is Final. The Skopje Solidarity Collection. For their installation All Things Flowing they picked seemingly contrasting works from the collection of MoCA Skopje by two very influential North Macedonian artists – Aneta Svetieva and Dushan Perchinkov. They reacted to this choice with two new works of their own to explore the local art history and to reimagine the story of MoCA Skopje in an essayistic way.

Publication Katrina Daschner. BURN & GLOOM! GLOW & MOON!

BURN & GLOOM! GLOW & MOON! was published in the context of the solo exhibition by Katrina Daschner at Kunsthalle Wien 2022.

BURN & GLOOM! GLOW & MOON! at Kunsthalle Wien was the most comprehensive exhibition of Vienna-based artist and filmmaker Katrina Daschner’s work to date. It encompassed works from the 1990s to the present, ranging from sculptures, textiles, music, performance, community-based work, and, most prominently, film, which sits at the heart of Daschner’s practice.

Addressing and performing the ways of being and nonbeing, Daschner’s multimedia, all-encompassing, powerful work is about becoming, making one feel less alone.
Hana Ostan Ožbolt

Glamorous Lesbians, Badass Queers, Flirtatious Sensual Plants and Swamps; it’s like having your abstract desires turn into images you can touch.
Denice Bourbon

The possibilities of queer form and life feel endless in Daschner’s work. Surfaces – of skin, jellyfish, water, hair, glitter, wool, bark – flow in and out of each other, assembling a body of work that simply leaves you in awe and always wanting more.
Hendrik Folkerts
