Rudi Cotroneo - 32°C auf Lampedusa

Vernissage: 
MAY 11, 2017, 18-22:00
Exhibition: 
MAY 12 - JUNE 4
Location: 
MQ - Electric Avenue, Museumsplatz 1, A-1070 Vienna

„Resultierend aus einem großen Geschichtsinteresse und aus Besorgnis über den Weg der Welt in der Neuzeit entwickelt Rudi Cotroneo in seinen Bildern eine Sehnsucht nach Ruhe in dieser von Unruhe gequälten, dynamischen Welt, deren Dynamik in vielen Dingen bereits sehr zu hinterfragen ist.
Malereien und Collagen zeigen vom Meer umgebene Inseln des Faßbaren und schaffen Ruhepole. Ein mächtiges zentrales Gebirgsmassiv, der Natur entnommen, als solide Basis umgeben von einer Klischeehaften Alm mit Dorf und einem See, gefüllt mit dem Quell allen Lebens, unserem Wasser.
 Die Szenerien geleiten den Betrachter zu den wesentlichen Dingen des Lebens und erweitert dadurch sein Verständnis für Natur und organisches Leben. Rudi Cotroneo spannt durch seinen eigenen Lebensweg vom Strand in Kalabrien bis zu den Bergen unserer Alpen einen malerischen Bogen der erhaltenswertesten Dinge unserer Erde, die es zu hegen und zu pflegen gilt in der Hoffnung sie noch lange mit dem wachsenden Verständnis aller Menschen zu bewahren." 

“As a result of a deep interest in history and concern about the world in modern times, Rudi Cotroneo developed a desire for peace in these turbulent times, in a dynamic world, whose dynamics can already be questioned in many ways.
His Paintings and collages show consciously perceivable islands surrounded by the sea and create calm anchors. A mighty central mountain massif, taken from nature, as a solid base surrounded by a clichéd alpine pasture with a village and a lake, filled with the spring of all life, our water. The sceneries lead the viewer to the essential things of life and expand thereby our understanding of nature and organic life. Rudi Cotroneo, inspired by his own way of life, traces an picturesque arc from the beach in Calabria to the mountains of our Alps, all valuable things of our earth, which must be nourished and cherished in the hope of preserving them for a long time with the growing understanding of all human beings.“

Error in Utopia v 0.2
Once there was a clear distinction between reality and illusion, but today the boundarie disappeared. The most intimate part of our lives became the virtual world that feeds on the media. The technology shapes human consciousness and way of thinking, changeing our perception. We live in a world where there are more and more information, and less and less meaning. The term hyperreality marks a new concurrence of circumstances in which disappears every tension between reality and illusion, between reality as it is and as it should be.

Ivana Tkalčić graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb. Before the Academy she received a master's degree in economics and tourism at Faculty of Economics, Zagreb. In the academic year 2014/2015. she got the ERASMUS + scholarship which enabled her to study at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. She was awarded with the Chancellor's Award of the University of Zagreb for the independent work of art, student awards Gold index and the prestigious Austrian Red Carpet Art Prize.

Joseph Rudolf - Into the Structure

Vernissage: 
APR 20, 2017, 18-22:00
Exhibition: 
APR 21 - JUNE 1, 2017, Tue - Fr, 11 - 20h
Location: 
Block44, Reindorfgasse 44, 1150 Wien

Birgit Rampula, die Designerin und der kreative Geist des Modelabels amateur und der Künstler Joseph Rudolf kooperieren nicht zum ersten Mal. Von der Geschäftsgestaltung im Außenbereich des Block44 über Workshops und kuratorische Tätigkeiten beim Parque del Sol Festivals in St.Pölten bis zur Idee und Umsetzung der Schwendergasse Public Gallery (Street Art) reichen die gemeinsamen Projekte. Ein Kunstprojekt wird es auch bei der nächsten Kooperation geben, diesmal taucht allerdings Joseph Rudolf in die Welt der Mode ein und entwirft mit amateur seine erste Kollektion.
Passend zum Projekt wird Sarah Lisa Rudolf, Schmuckkünstlerin und Schwester des Künstlers, neue Werkstücke zeigen.

In der Ausstellung werden neben der textilen Zusammenarbeit auch weitere Werke von Joseph Rudolf zu sehen sein, sowie eine bereits auf seine nächste Ausstellung anspielende Arbeit.

In die Struktur, als Ansammlung von menschlichen Einflüssen begriffen, wirken wir alle ein. Die schönen Dinge des Lebens sind essentiell für unser Wohlbefinden und ein wichtiger Bestandteil dieses Geflechts. Dennoch macht sich eine gewisse Ohnmacht gegenüber re­pe­ti­tiver und komplexer Muster unserer Zeit bemerkbar. Ist eine Selbstreflexion der eigenen Strukturen erwünscht oder sind diese in gewisser Weise auch Orte der Bequemlichkeit, eine auferlegte Komfortzone aus der heraus wir die eigene Verstrickung beinahe widerstandslos hinnehmen?
Die Werkreihe INTO THE STRUCTURE ist eine Ansammlung von Fragen ohne konkrete Antworten, eine ruhelose Beschäftigung mit persönlichen Eindrücken und einwirkenden Informationen.

Birgit Rampula, the designer and the creative spirit of the Fashion Label AMATEUR and the artist JOSEPH RUDOLF are not cooperating for the first time. Their joint projects range from designing the ceiling at the outside area of Block44 to workshops and curatorial activities at the Parque del Sol Festival in St.Pölten (Lower Austria) to the idea and implementation of the Schwendergasse Public Gallery (Street Art). Their next cooperation is also an art project, but this time Joseph Rudolf will enter the world of fashion and designs his first collection together with AMATEUR.
Sarah Lisa Rudolf, a jewelry artist and sister of the artist, will show new pieces inspired by the topic of the exhibition.

In the exhibition, besides the textile co-operation, other works by Joseph Rudolf will be on display, as well as a work already hinting at his next show.

We all take influence on the structure, seen as a collection of human actions. The beautiful things of life are essential for our well-being and an important part of this nexus. Nevertheless, a certain impuissance in respect of repetitive and complex patterns of our time is noticeable. Is a self-reflection of the own structures desired or are they in a sort also places of laziness, an imposed comfort zone, which let us almost accept the own entanglement without resistance?
The INTO THE STRUCTURE series is a collection of questions without precise answers, a restless occupation with personal impressions and information we are confronted with.

Gabriel Diakowski Smart Gott

Gabriel Diakowski - Smart Gott

Vernissage: 
APR 16, 19-22:00 (Ostersonntag)
Exhibition: 
APR 17 - MAY 7, 2017
Location: 
MQ - Electric Avenue, Museumsplatz 1, A-1070 Vienna

Der Wiener Künstler Gabriel Diakowski hat sich mit Haut und Haar dem Konflikt zwischen Religion und „Moderne“ verschrieben und zeigt unter dem Label SMART GOTT seine jüngsten Arbeiten im Museumsquartier. In seinen Bildern kombiniert er Texte und Symbole aus dem religiösen Kontext mit Symbolen aus dem kapitalistischen Kontext, um auf Gemeinsamkeiten und Differenzen hinzuweisen – nicht ohne Humor. Die Ausstellung eröffnet symbolisch am Tag der Auferstehung Christi (Ostersonntag) und läuft bis 7. Mai.

Grundgedanke von SMART GOTT ist die etymologische Wortbedeutung von „Gott“. Das Wort „Gott“ wurzelt im indogermanischen Wort für „rufen“ (ghuto) und bedeutet soviel wie „der/die/das Angerufene“ – ohne genauere Bestimmung, wer oder was angerufen wird. Im „Rufen“ kann ganz allgemein gesprochen aber auch das Wesen unseres menschlichen Sprechens verortet werden, denn jedes gesprochene Wort steht symbolisch für eine Vorstellung, die „angerufen“ wird. In der Gottesidee steckt so gesehen ein Drehmoment der Entwicklung von Sprache. Auf diesen Gedanken bauend stellt Gabriel Diakowski die Gottesidee in den Kontext wissenschaftlicher Forschung, um sie durch ästhetisch Reflexion weiterzuentwickeln.

Kurzbiographie Gabriel Diakowski
Gabriel Diakowski, *1977 in Wien, studiete Sprach- und Kommunikationswissenschaften an der Universität Wien und begann früh als Texter und Konzeptionist für renomierte Werbeagenturen zu arbeiten: in Österreich und Deutschland. Bis er sich schließlich in ein buddhistisches Kloster in Vorarlberg zurückzog. Er lebt heute in Wien und arbeitet als selbstständiger Autor und Markenentwickler unter anderem für das Zukunftsinstitut.

SMART GOTT is a multimedia art project by the creative Vienna native Gabriel Diakowski for the further development of our spiritual uniqueness as humans. It takes on the the monotheistic conception of God and places it in the context of a new synaesthetic theory of writing and culture.

The start of SMART GOTT is the etymological meaning of "God." The word "God" is rooted in the Indo-European word for "call" (ghuto) and essentially means "the called" – without a more precise determination of who or what is called. In "calling," the nature of our human speech can be found in a very general sense, since every spoken word symbolically stands a concept that is "called." In the conception of God, there is thus a torque of the development of language; From this, the author concludes that we can further develop ourselves as a spiritual species if we further develop the concept of God – on the basis of scientific research.

Short biography of Gabriel Diakowski
Gabriel Diakowski, born in Vienna in 1977, broke off his studies of language and communication sciences (French and journalism) at the University of Vienna after completing the first stage of studies in order to work as a copywriter and concept developer in a renowned Viennese advertising agency. His career led him to international creative agencies in Hamburg and Berlin, until he retired to a Buddhist monastery in Vorarlberg. He now lives in Vienna and works as an independent author and brand developer, including the Zukunftsinstitut.
