    SALON REAL / VIRTUAL: 3# Sandro Đukić | Road movie

    07 Nov 2020 – 04 Dec 2020

    SALON REAL / VIRTUAL 3# Salon: Sandro Đukić| Road Movie 7.11. – 3.12.2020 Opening: Saturday, 7.11., 11 - 17h Timeslot every 15 min / one by one person/ come and go Two fireside chats are planned with Sandro Đukić / TBA In the third edition of Salon Real / Virtual, works by the Croatian artist Sandro Đukić are on display. As a new-media artist he always deals with co-relations of different media such as photography, video, computer-processing, storing, documentation and archiving data, that resemble reality exposed to this process of photographing and disclosing through media. In the show Road Movie the artist's gaze is not only turned inwards but also directed to what is easily overlooked to the unspectacular and his analog and digital photos become documents of the past and present moment. By doing so, he applies different layers and meanings of space. Furthermore, he refers in his work to the questions of time, durance and transience. In Salon Real Sandro Đukić shows photographs out of the series Correlation of inner images. These works demonstrates the transience of the body, relationships to other people, as well as the “inner life” of human beings and deals with the difference between image and reality, focus lies on the subjective inner reflection of the reality. The digital exhibition in Salon Virtual highlights the analogue photo series Road movie by Đukić.The monumental black and white images depicts the Icelandic landscape photographed during the artist’s residence in 1992. In order to document his adventure, Đukić took with him two disposable cameras with a small number of shots and two black and white films. Sandra Križić Roban describes his working method as follows: “Sandro’s documentation of his travels seems to have come about without a previous plan: what drives him is an obsessive and compulsive habit in which many things look similar at the first glance. This time he was concentrated on every single shot, deliberately relying on aesthetics, on the visual impressiveness of the landscape, whose lasting qualities he did not have to prove by manic, continuous shooting of almost every experienced moment. Above all, during the shooting he was interested in the exploration of a pure, reduced relation to oneself, nature, and adventure.“ It seems as if the photographs from his series profit from absence of that which characterizes cinematography, like lasting, real time and narration. Đukić`s chosen approach points to many things in the photographs we cannot see and our certainty in what we see is questioned. The naked and lonely panoramic landscape conveys a new experience of space. The spatial proportions the images are unique, nature dramatic and at first glance free of existential elements. This can be interpreted as pure existence freed from any narrative elements and knowledge. Đukić refers in the monumental images of the Icelandic landscapes directly to the context of the road movie aesthetics as a visual and intellectual point of departure and remember us of Wim Wender’s movies. His landscapes mediate certain graveness, a personal experience that cannot be retold and in front of the viewer stretches a desolate and uncommunicative terrain. The road navigates us by a singular vision of space and time, and the possible means, we might use to travel between them, which exist just outside of our present reality. This road is the space of life in Đukić`s photography of the longue durée - it is the landscape upon which the lone journeys of individual lives take place and intersect. What the viewer sees is only a desolated and uncommunicative terrain, a “floating” place where the narrative lies. Curriculum Vitae The Croatian New Media artist, Sandro Đukić studied with Đuro Seder in Zagreb, with Nan Hoover in Düsseldorf and Nam June Paik in NY. Being a New Media artist, he not only deals with the changing relationships of media such as photography and video, but also with computer-controlled mechanisms like saving, documenting and data storage of reality. He swiftly changes between the afore mentioned media - from spatial, architectonic and photographic installations and constructed films and, at the same time, creates several levels of meaning as concerns space. Đukić is primarily interested in the phenomenon of time and he tries to track down its duration and its circle. But he also explores the change of technological paradigm as well as deindustrialization. For the past 20 years, he has dedicated himself to the re-search in and of archives and the multimedia presentation thereof.

    SALON REAL / VIRTUAL: 1# Salon: Denise Schellmann | Zwischenräume

    11 Sep 2020 – 08 Oct 2020

    SALON REAL / VIRTUAL 1# SALON: DENISE SCHELLMANN | ZWISCHENRÄUME / Spaces in-between 11.9. – 08.10.2020 Salon 1# presents the young Austrian artist and pharmacist Denise Schellmann. With her background in science, Denise Schellmann sees the human body in the form of many coloured cells and empty spaces in-between, which would otherwise only be visible with a microscope. Her working process unfolds in a space between art and science from which she constantly draws new impetus for her compositions. The emphasis is on the intuitive drawing process, which as such requires extensive knowledge of the matter, even to the level of unconscious, automated actions. Her pencil and coloured pencil drawings initially impress with their seemingly harmonious colour composition, but in search of organic abstraction, all contradictions and inconsistencies are synthesised into a colourfully balanced and melodious tune on the invisible and difficult-to-access interfaces. Striking polarisation is a recurring theme in her work. Things the artist has learned, seen and experienced intuitively become part of her drawing process, thus creating new possibilities of interpretation in the viewer's mind. Elementary human and existential questions are interwoven in the structure of the drawing. Similar to yin-yang, two diametrically opposed principles co-exist in her imagery, which relate to and complement each other in a certain way: matter and space, art and science, image and word or creativity and structuredness, to name but a few. In her manifesto "The Arscientic Andism", Schellmann calls these intermediate spaces "Andism". In her new artworks, butterfly-like forms stand for reflection on one's own life and personal growth in uncertain circumstances. Comparable to the metamorphosis of a butterfly and its transformation from caterpillar to beautiful butterfly, this process reflects characteristics such as fragility, strength and independence.

The goal is to dock the real world more strongly and actively at the interface to the virtual world in order to set new approaches and work processes in motion and in this way to further develop interactive media art, and to have a stronger interdisciplinary approach to contemporary art, both in theory and in production VIDEO SALON REAL / VIRTUAL CLICK HERE to see the VIDEO https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hj0yAJggMos&t=8s MORE INFO can be found www.galerie-stock.net

    SALON REAL / VIRTUAL: #2 Natalia Gurova | Triggered silhouettes

    08 Oct 2020 – 05 Nov 2020

    In the second exhibition in Salon Real / Virtual, works by the young artist and journalist Natalia Gurova are on display. Her artwork at the moment focuses on the objects and structures that trigger change in human behavior and oscillate between plane imagery and three-dimensionality. In Salon Real Natalia Gurova shows two wall sculptures that deal with the changeable surface aesthetics of the object, but at the same time both pieces with their feel sensitize a subjective perception. The show in Salon Virtual is titled Triggered silhouettes and includes sculptures and graphic works that navigate between artistic techniques, and sometimes even merge. Natalia Gurova tells us in her works very often personal stories and her gaze is not only turned inwards but also directed to what is easily overlooked to the unspectacular. The main preoccupation of Gurova's works is reconsideration of the complex relationship between the conscious and unconscious 'self', their dichotomy and interaction. Her pieces with text combinations revolve around the question on which principles the naming of objects happens, that emphasize infinite reflection between the world and us. Some questions the artist addresses are: What love darts fired by the Roman god Cupid and love darts of snails, or architectural columns and vertebral column, have in common. Due to our tendency to take things more individually than to think in bigger correlations, most of these references usually remain subconscious. Her ongoing participatory performance “Sweet archive” in the virtual and real exhibition space contributes to the overall poetic effect and indicates the intended line of thought. The visitor can participate in this performance in the real and virtual space and the focus is on the interlocking of the real and virtual world and their combination of visual and haptic stimuli. Curriculum Vitae Natalia Gurova is an artist, born in Belarus, raised in Russia and based in Vienna. She did a journalism degree in Moscow and received her MA in Journalism from Moscow State University (2009) and worked for several years as political journalist in Moscow for different media including newspapers, radio, online and TV.. Currently she lives and works in Vienna and studies at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna (Julian Göthe, 2018) and before she studied at the University of Applied Arts (Paul Petritsch / 2014 - 2018). Guided studio visits on request The real artworks can be viewed with Michaela Stock in the artists' studio. Appointments can be made by phone +43 699 19 20 77 78. The virtual exhibition is documented in the form of printed information brochures. At the same time, art lovers can purchase a limited signed art poster of each exhibition for € 20,-.
