The massive plaster reliefs with their integrated clockworks, which Georg Frauenschuh shows at Webster Vienna Private University, neither want to make a statement about time nor serve as proof that art can also be an interior. He rather captures the view from his work desk to the opposite apartment building and focuses on the sight of windows, curtains, randomly stapled garden chairs etc. He sketches them and transfers the drawings to plaster reliefs. The material in its massiveness stands in strong contrast with the fugitive initial situation. The apparent functionalization of the objects increases the transformation even further.
For the sewn fabric images on display he uses found clip arts from the net. Here too, the materiality (of the sewn picture) is in conflict with the painterly themes to which the motifs refer.
After more than 15 years, the T.K. Lang Gallery at Webster Vienna Private University ends its exhibition program. On this occasion, we would like to celebrate these wonderful and exciting years with you.
