MARTIN RAINER. CLAY COTS

 

28 November 2014 – 6 January 2015

 

The artist Martin Rainer (1923-2012) follows the tradition of creating cots in his home town Schnals. He created his private annual cot with numerous clay figures together with his wife Klementine and their children between 1966 and 1974.


In the last months of his life, the sculptor occupied himself with the biblical narratives of the Sermon on the Mount and with the Beatitudes. Although, according to the artist, the cot had already taken on very concrete forms in his imagination, he was no longer able to finish it. His son Josef Rainer, himself a sculptor, and his wife Klementine completed it. The last clay cot has been on display at the Hofburg since November 2013.

HANS KNAPP 'WHAT IS IT LIKE'? ARTWORKS 1970-2014

11 April 2014 - 1 June 2014

The exhibition is showing objects and installations, some of which tie in with ideas that have preoccupied the artist for some time and which are now being placed in new contexts in terms of form and content. These also include works from the 'THOLOS' project, which are privately owned and are being shown publicly for the first time.
Over the past two years, the artist has delved into a new project in which pictorial and linguistic elements are brought together to form a dialectical unity of meaning. The exhibition features flags and photo-text montages.

THE BURNING SUPPER. JULIA BORNEFELD

22 March 2014 - 31 August 2014


The large painting, a photograph to be exact, in a mighty charred wooden frame captures a moment of a performance re-enacting "The Last Supper" at a brightly burning table at night on a frozen lake in South Tyrol. The exhibition is complemented by paintings by the artist.
