Gabriele Fulterer & Christine Scherrer. Darkroom

Opening: Fr, 8 February 2019, 8pm

The “Kabinett” space, stripped of its usual direct access and its windows, becomes a lightless, dark space accessible only by going around several corners. Its ceiling of heavy wooden beams reinforces a gloomy, constricted atmosphere. The space becomes a “cabinet”, a “chamber” even, revealing a strange intensity: Here, a cage made of aluminium and steel―with its crossbars held together by industrial latches―is suspended from the ceiling in the room’s centre. Illuminated by ultraviolet light, the cage floats in a grey zone between painting and sculpture. Its seeming fluorescence suggests an oversized object or an abstract form that might have sprung from a “darkroom ensemble”.

Gabriele Fulterer (*Mürzzuschlag, 1967) / Christine Scherrer (*Salzburg, 1967) have been an artist-duo since 2007 and live and work in Vienna.
